Remember Frenchy from Grease?

Well, the actress behind everybody's favourite beauty school dropout Didi Conn appeared on Good Morning Britain earlier today (May 10).

During her chat with Susanna Reid and Kate Garraway, the star dropped a bombshell about the iconic movie – and now, we're kinda mad at producers.

It turns out, there was supposed to be a sequel! And no, we're not talking about Grease 2 with Michelle Pfeiffer. We mean a proper sequel with all the original cast including Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta!

"Towards the end of filming when we were doing that carnival scene – remember when the boys were throwing pies at the coach and he says, 'I'll see you in summer school'? That was supposed to be a sequel with the whole cast at summer school," she revealed.

Explaining why the film never came to be, the actress added: "Paramount watched the dance and they said, 'No, we don't want to do a sequel, this is going to be a nice little summer film'.

"So they passed, but then when it became a huge success, John and Olivia were both busy and Grease 2 was born instead – which is very different."

On a brighter note, we do have some good news for Grease fans across the land.

NOW TV has launched a pop-up screening experience in London to mark the 40th anniversary of the film, set in a replica of Frenchy's bedroom where the iconic Sandra Dee scene took place.
