The YouTube star, 27, is making his West End debut as Ogie in the hit musical.

He is taking over the part from Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison.

Harrison will make his final performance on September 7 and Sugg starts as Ogie from September 9.

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams her way out of a loveless marriage.

It premiered on Broadway in March 2016 and has since become the longest-running show in the history of the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

It opened at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End earlier this year.
