ZOE BALL was left with water stains on her trousers while filming new ITV1 talent competition Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream – and not because she waded in the Ionian Sea like Amanda Seyfried’s Sophie Sheridan in the blockbuster film.
Rather, it was freak weather that almost brought filming to a standstill, as presenter Zoe recalled: “You fly to Greece and think the weather is going to be fantastic, and for the first few days it was absolutely terrible.”
“Initially we had torrential rain and some of the sets were blown away.
“I wore long bell-bottoms at a show and ended up with water from the set up to my knees.
“I had water stains on my pants.”
She added: “We had the audience under umbrellas, but then the gods of Olympus smiled on us and the sun came out.”
Mamma Mia!, which aims to recruit two stars for the London production of the ABBA musical Mamma Mia! starts on October 22nd at 6 p.m.
Yesterday it unveiled its cast, which includes hopefuls Desmonda, 27, who moved from Indonesia to London to break into the West End, and Tobias, 22, who has been on tour with Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice.
