Lily James, 29, looked every inch the leading lady in a strapless ivory gown as she her co-stars Colin Firth (right) Amanda Seyfried, Cher (middle), Meryl Streep (left) and Abba's Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus (top left).

"The critics could have a good old field day with us, but I think at the end of the day the people are going to enjoy it even more then the last one", he said.

"It was so much fun to see her".

Streep also sings on ensemble number Super Trouper in the film, and she also appears on the digital version of the soundtrack singing The Day Before You Came - but it's unclear if this is actually in the movie.

Speaking with TODAY about the movie (via Rolling Stone), Cher revealed that she enjoyed singing the classic disco pop music so much that she chose to put he own touch on more of the material. "It's not what you would think of when you think of ABBA, 'cause I did it in a different way". Here We Go Again with ex Dominic Cooper, has explained that they actually do mind.
