Former S CLUB bandmember Jon Lee is having trouble starring in a West End musical - because there's too much singing to do.

The DON'T STOP MOVIN' star, who appears in the stage show Les Miserables, has given weight to rumours that his old pop band sometimes mimed to backing tapes by complaining about the vocal stress involved in doing musical theatre.

He moans, "Doing Les Miserables is a different discipline because I have to do so much singing. The whole show is vocally quite a challenge.

"A lot of emotion goes into it - but people are in tears at the end because it has affected them so much."
