She also wore the classic long black wig with silver highlights in the front and signature black and silver heavy eyeshadow.

Michelle got cozy on stage with her husband Ramin, who wore Gomez's signature black striped suit and bow tie.

For a daring shot, Michelle sat on Ramin's lap and stretched her long, fishnet-clad legs in the air.

The play is based on the fictional family created by American cartoonist Charles Addams in the 1930s, who have a penchant for the macabre.

The musical was created in 2009 by Andrew Lippa, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and was nominated for two Tony Awards.

The synopsis reads: “Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; She fell in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respected family!

“Now Gomez Addams must do something he has never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife Morticia.”

“Everything will change for the entire family on that fateful night when they host a dinner for the “normal” boyfriend and his parents on Wednesday.”

Michelle showed off her 45lb weight loss in the sexy costume after revealing she lost the pounds to “relieve inflammation” rather than to be thin.

The Radio 2 presenter lost weight in just a year following the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP) and weightlifting after struggling with perimenopause.

She previously explained that she hopes the weight loss will also help cure her Hashimoto's disease – an autoimmune disease that destroys the thyroid gland.

Appearing on Loose Women late last year, Michelle explained that she believes her breast implant journey was also a major factor in the shocking weight loss.

She told the panel: “I have an autoimmune disease.” I hate reducing our self-esteem to our bodies. We are so much more than that.

“The trip was never about losing weight. It was about reducing inflammation and that's what came with it.

“I believe my breast implant journey was an important factor.”

According to healthline.com: “The Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP) is an elimination diet designed to help reduce inflammation or other symptoms caused by autoimmune diseases.”

The play is based on the fictional family created by American cartoonist Charles Addams in the 1930s who have a penchant for the macabre (pictured are the cast of the 1960s TV show The Addams Fmaily).

On her BBC Sounds podcast Rule Breakers in 2023, Michelle revealed that she had gained over three stone in weight.

Shortly afterwards, she celebrated her “health anniversary” on Instagram and emphasized: “I never wanted to be thin, I wanted muscles!”

She explained: “Menopause was a big wake-up call for me.” It shocked me. I didn't know anything. I went in without knowing anything. It was the worst thing I've experienced in my life.

“It's by far the worst thing I've ever experienced.” I'm not a weak person and I thought, “I'll give up soon if I don't get help.”

“When I had my breast implants removed last year, I had to take them out. Perimenopause, breast implant illness, all at the same time.

“I'm so proud of my change.” I did it because I'm committed to lifting heavy weights – being a woman of a certain age, that will really put the doctors off because strength training is key.

“People think it’s cardio and running – no!” It’s going to the gym. Don't worry about what people think about you. “I do it with YouTube and I also do it from home with weights,” before reminding people: “Everything is free online!”
