Meryl Streep thinks Cher "steals" the show in 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again'.

The 69-year-old actress has reprised her role as Donna Sheridan in the musical sequel but she has admitted the legendary singer, who plays her mother Ruby, was the one who had all eyes on her.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', Streep said: "It was fantastic.

"I came on the set the day that she sang 'Fernando.' That was my first day... And she just lifted the lid off the place! I mean, she steals the movie!"

Streep then joked that the 72-year-old singer "appropriately" plays her mother in the movie because she's "lived longer" than her - despite only being three years older.
