In one scene Tom wore a green waistcoat with a lace cravat along with knee high socks and buckled shoes.

He then donned an embroidered blue dressing gown with red detailing over the top. 

Finally, the star put on a pink and blue dress adorned with bows and boasting a hoop skirt, along with a baroque style wig as he danced across the stage.

The Play What I Wrote is a comedy play celebrating the British comedy act of Morecambe and Wise.

Playing the 'Comte De Toblerone', a fugitive from the French Revolution, in a play by the Ernie Wise character ('A Tight Squeeze For The Scarlet Pimple'), Tom's job was to take a gentle ribbing from the rest of the Eric and Ernie characters. 

Previous stars to take on the cameo role have included Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Joanna Lumley, Daniel Radcliffe, Kylie Minogue, Nigel Havers, Jerry Hall, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting.
