Tim Minchin has revealed he will be living out his "rock star" dreams when he flies over the stage on a wire in Jesus Christ Superstar.

The musician and comedian is playing Judas in Andrew Lloyd Webber's arena tour production of his musical, co-starring Chris Moyles, Mel C and the winner of new ITV show Superstar as Jesus.

Tim told Absolute Radio backstage at the Latitude festival: "I got an email the other day saying 'Is Tim scared of heights?' And I'm like 'Yeah baby! I think I'm coming in from the roof!'

"All my rock star dreams. And being Jesus' nemesis, it's everything I've ever wanted!"

The Australian funnyman starts rehearsing for the show in August before it opens on September 21 at the O2.

Meanwhile, Tim is busy touring the summer festivals and has just been added to the line-up at the Glee Club Comedy Tent at the Virgin Media V Festival in August.

Also entertaining the crowds at both the Chelmsford and Staffordshire sites on August 18 and 19, 2012 will be Mock The Week's Milton Jones and 8 Out Of 10 Cats comedian Sean Lock.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
