Dawn French has described her Superstar co-star Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber as a "tiptop gent".
French, Jason Donovan and Mel C have joined Webber on his search for the lead in Jesus Christ Superstar.
Discussing what it was like to work with Webber, French said in a statement: "I am far too over excited about my involvement on Superstar. I am counting the days to it, like you do at Christmas when you're a child.
"I haven't worked with Andrew before, but I have actually portrayed him when we did a parody on French and Saunders.
"I have met him a few times and he is a tiptop gent and I'm looking forward to getting to know him better."
Joking about what she was looking for in the contestants, she said: "A splendid voice and a twenty six-pack - if indeed there is such a thing! If there was, I reckon Jesus would have it.
"I will be looking out for someone who can blow your socks off each night on stage.
"Plenty of people are very good on stage and very few are remarkable or beyond fantastic and I am hoping we will find someone like that."
