A musical theatre supergroup has shared a touching cover of Bring Him Home from Les Misérables in support of the NHS.
The Barricade Boys – Scott Garnham, Simon Schofield, Kieran Brown, Lee Honey-Jones and Alistair Barron – are joined by former Les Misérables cast members Alfie Boe, Ramin Karimloo, John Owen-Jones, David Shannon, Alistair Brammer, Fra Fee and Rob Houchen for the performance.
Filmed in isolation, the clip is introduced by This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Scott Garnham, founder of The Barricade Boys said: “Music has this incredible power to make people stop and listen. “Bring Him Home” will resonate with so many people – it’s a trying and scary time for everyone but we still have a lot to be grateful for, in particular, our incredible NHS. This is just a very small way of saying thank you.”
Alfie Boe added: “I was overwhelmed witnessing the selfless acts of kindness, commitment and dedication through such turbulent times beyond anything we’ve ever known by the NHS. They are all incredible.”
And Phillip Schofield commented: “Our NHS have always been our guardian angels, selflessly taking care of us when we need them. What they are expected to do now requires superhuman talent, strength, care and total commitment. Yet there they are, on the frontline for us, battling with everything they have to try to save us.
“That’s why I’m behind this and any other project that collectively forms a nationwide, deafening chorus of ‘Thank you, you are incredible, we appreciate every single one of you and we will do anything we can to help you through these unprecedented times’.”
