Now he has landed a ‘dream job’

Now, away from the BBC soap opera Bradley has confirmed that he is heading overseas for a brand new role.

Bradley will be treading the boards by appearing in Phantom of the Opera – in Italy.

Confirming his role in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, he shared a gushing post to Instagram where he expressed his delight to be appearing in the show.

The star said: “I’m so honoured to be playing the role of Raoul in the Italian premier of Phantom of the Opera.

“Standing next to my idol and friend @raminkarimloo and this incredible cast.

“Directed by the incredible Federico Bellone, this production is one not to be missed!”

His fans rushed to the comments to express their happiness for the actor with one superfan claiming they had already sorted a weekend trip to the sun-soaked country to see him in action.

They said: “OH MY GOD this has made my day, month, year. I’m even more excited than I was before.

“I’ve completely blown my holiday budget for the year to travel over for a weekend to see this.”

Another penned: “Proud of you sir!”

Whilst a third said: “Sensational my friend x.”

Bradley became a quick favourite among the Albert Square locals and has certainly made a good impression on Sonia.

Having earned a first class honours degree in musical theatre from the Guildford School of Acting, it seemed no surprise that Bradley would take to the stage and put in a series of stellar performances.

Among some of his impressive turns are Dean Martin in The Rat Pack, Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers and Shrek: The Musical.

As well as appearing in West End hit Wicked, the actor has also appeared in a number of runs of Les Misérables flitting between the roles of Enjolras and Javert.
