It has been a pretty fabulous year for McFly star, Tom Fletcher.

After welcoming his second son with wife Giovanna Fletcher, Buddy, back in February, the star has embarked on a McFly tour, released a book, and kickstarted the motions for said book to be turned into a feature length, musical film.

But the fun doesn’t end there.

Yes, this morning Tom made a seriously exciting announcement and revealed that his book-turned-film, The Christmasaurus, is also going to be adapted for the stage and we honestly couldn’t be more excited.

Unfortunately we have a long ol’ while to wait before we’re able to watch the stage show as it isn’t launching until December 2017, but that just gives us even more time to get excited about it, doesn’t it?

Announcing the news in true Tom Fletcher style, the popular YouTube vlogger created a video of himself whizzing around the backstage area of the Eventim Apollo, London, promising “snow, magic, Christmas lights, a very Christmassy dinosaur, music and singing elves” before he walked on to the stage only to find that there is nobody in the audience.

Tom concludes with: ‘Oh, the show’s next year, sorry!”

Stop being so ruddy adorable, Tom – we can’t cope.

The super talented Tom has written a number of original songs for the film adaptation, which is being directed by Michael Gracey, and he is set to perform one of them at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.

Needless to say, we couldn’t be more excited; bring on December 2017 – it’ll certainly be worth the wait.
