Cher continues to perform live: as well as continuing her concert residencies in Washington DC and Las Vegas throughout 2018, she will tour Australia in the autumn. Indeed, much of the present day movie plot struggles to carry it's own without Meryl - until Cher arrives, that is.

Hollywood veteran Meryl Streep and singer-actress Cher locked lips at the premiere of their forthcoming film Mamma Mia!

"He's been great", she added.

Cher plays Ruby Sheridan, the mother of the first film's protagonist Donna (Meryl Streep). Speaking to People, she said, "I was thrilled to death, and it was so silly". I'd guess he assumed Dominic is in love with me the way he's in love with me.

"We were kind of protective of the first one because we were very proud of it, it was very good and it became kind of a cult movie ... and we thought what's the point of risking ... taking away from that legacy, so we were reluctant", Ulvaeus told Reuters.

She also studied a number of Streep's "more comedic" past projects, including 1990's Postcards from the Edge, which was based on the late Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name.

The sequel's cast additions include Lily James, who plays the younger Donna, and Cher, who portrays Donna's mother.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again lays all of its Abba love on us with platform heels, tongue-in-cheek humour and joy-infused musical performances choreographed to perfection by Anthony Van Laast.
