As part of the project, the theatre's toilets are getting a revamp and Alex has signed himself up to the London Marathon to help kickstart the fundraising and to prove that literally anything is possible.

As a self-confessed non-runner, Alex is currently in training and will be tackling the 26.2 mile route on Sunday 28th April.

He has set himself a target of £5,000 to go directly towards the toilet upgrade as the project is likely to cost upwards of £30,000 to complete.

I am equally as thrilled and terrified to be doing my bit for the upgrade of the toilets, it's long overdue and will make a huge difference to the comfort of our audiences.

So please, put the 28th April into your diaries to catch a glimpse of our Alex shuffling round London on TV, and if you're able to, please donate to Alex's fundraising page.
