Bradford born Gareth Gates stars in brand new play 'Loserville' written by former 'Busted' band member James Bourne. The play premieres at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on Monday 18th June for a four week run. Set in 1971 Gates plays 'Eddie' the guy with the ego, who wants a fast track ticket to stardom, something the former "Pop Idol" star says is nothing like him.

The play also stars Lil Chris (Rock School), Gareth Gates (Pop Idol), Charlotte Harwood (Legally Blonde), Eliza Hope Bennett (Inkheart), and Aaron Sidwell (Eastenders). For anyone who is interest in 70's history, fashion and more importantly 70's dating it's well worth a watch. So, what is 'Loserville' all about - this promotional video for the show explains.
