Many years ago, I worked as a newspaper reporter and in the summer of 2008 I was asked to write a story on the massive success of a small musical film called Mamma Mia! I’ll confess, I’m not a huge Abba fan so I was a bit cynical, but even I couldn’t avoid being swept up on the wave of enthusiasm for the Greek romance. Now, 10 years on, I’m a bit older and greyer, and the gang are back for the long-awaited sequel. I hope you enjoy our behind-the-scenes look at the movie – and I’ll see you all at the cinema on release day!
