It was revealed in late 2017 that she would join the cast of Mamma Mia! Another commented: "Meryl and Cher officially broke the Internet".

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again lays all of its Abba love on us with platform heels, tongue-in-cheek humour and joy-infused musical performances choreographed to perfection by Anthony Van Laast.

"Finally after eight years there was a script that everyone agreed on so we said OK then, let's do it", he said.
