Talented singer-songwriter Elspeth Dickens thinks her chance of stardom has come and gone. Now married to James, whose work as a whale-saving activist takes him to sea for weeks at a time, she finds her days more than filled looking after three-year-old twins. But Elspeth hasn’t quite given up on her dreams, and when she sets up a webcam in her kitchen to keep her husband entertained with performances of her own, self-penned show-stoppers, she becomes an internet sensation overnight.

Mark Lamprell’s delightful musical – based on Joanna Weinberg’s one-woman stage show – is an uproariously entertaining picture full of glorious tunes and big laughs. In his feature film debut, Ronan Keating impresses as James (he’s in fine voice too), but the show belongs to West End and Broadway star Laura Michelle Kelly as the irrepressible Elspeth. By turns witty and charming, Goddess is an infectious delight.
