“I was delighted to be asked to perform as The Helix Panto has such a brilliant reputation with the critics and it is just so funny even the cast can’t stop laughing,” the 34-year-old said.

“I’m also very excited about having the chance to sing on stage. I used to be a singer and I won big talent contests in my teens so I really looking forward to that.

“As the stepmother I’m very scary, the kids are going to hate me but the whole family will love Cinderella. It’s a really funny, fast-paced panto, packed full of brilliant gags.”
