In December, Nicole took to the stage in the West End for the first time for the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical. She then appeared as Grizabella for a 12-week run, performing for the final time last month.

"I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show," she said. "Andrew's score is breathtaking and I am truly honoured to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career."

Other famous faces who have also been given an Olivier nod include Beverly Knight (Memphis The Musical) and Gemma Arteton (Made in Dagenham) for 'Best Actress In A Musical'.
