More TV talent show stars, Daniel Boys and Lauren Samuels, turn up in Love Story at the Octagon Theatre Bolton from this Thursday to July 12.

Erich Segal’s best-selling novel and subsequent 1970s hit film, is widely regarded as one of the most romantic and moving stories of all time.

Two worlds collide when spirited Italian-American Jennifer Cavilleri and wealthy, privileged Harvard alumni Oliver Barrett IV fall in love.

The pair, whose backgrounds could not be more different, are united by a love that endures in the face of adversity, through family opposition to their marriage and devastating personal tragedy.

Taking on the role of Oliver is Daniel Boys, currently playing Sir Lancelot in the Monty Python musical comedy Spamalot at the Playhouse Theatre alongside Jodie Prenger and Joe Pasquale.

Daniel appeared on the successful Andrew Lloyd-Webber talent show Any Dream Will Do in 2007, which has seen him go on to an extremely successful career.

Joining him in the role of Jennifer Cavilleri, Lauren Samuels was a finalist in the Andrew Lloyd-Webber BBC series Over the Rainbow, and made her West End debut as Sandy in Grease at the Piccadilly Theatre.

This stage version of Love Story, by Stephen Clark, features a brand new score by Howard Goodall who has composed an entire body of choral music, music for television and musical theatre.
