Oliver Lansley and ex-Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly play Everett and his wife Lee Middleton in the 90-minute drama.

Tim Whitnall's drama follows the "unconventional love story" of DJ Everett and his wife Lee (Kelly), who were married for 13 years between 1966 and 1979.

The story will be told using some of Everett's famous characters, including Cupid Stunt and Quentin Pose, and centres on his career and personal life.

Freddie Mercury will be played by James Floyd, while Simon Callow will portray Richard Attenborough and Jonathan Kerrigan plays John Alkin.
