Joanne, best known for her time on Strictly, has most recently been seen in productions such as Flashdance and Rocky Horror Show at the Lyceum and is currently brushing up her magic to play the Fairy in this year’s panto.

Ben Thornton (People Just Do Nothing) plays Dandini, Evelyn Hoskins (This Is My Family, Sheffield Lyceum and UK tour) is Cinderella and Oliver Watton (Wicked, West End) is Prince Charming. They head to the ball alongside Phil Gallagher (CBeebies’ Mister Maker) as Buttons, plus Lyceum legend Damian Williams and Matt Daines (The Go Go Go Show), as the Ugly Sisters.
