Children's TV favourite Naomi is new panto star
Popular children's TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson has replaced controversial TV star Roxanne Pallett as Cinderella in the Pomegranate TheatreÂ pantomime in Chesterfield.
The former Emmerdale actressÂ pulled out of the role and other work after a storm of bad publicity over the Celebrity Big Brother '˜punchgate' row.
Naomi Wilkinson began her career as a Butlin's Redcoat and made a splash as the effervescent host of Channel 5's Milkshake! which she presented for 10 years.
She has been a constant and well-loved face on UK TV screens ever since, notably as the presenter of Marrying Mum & Dad, Countryfile, Finger Tips and Live 'n' Deadly with Steve Backshall among many others.
