TV sensation Lucy Benjamin – best known as Lisa in EastEnders – brought plenty of magic to her role as fairy godmother.

And children of all ages were delighted to see Derek Moran, of Milkshake Live, play Prince Charming’s aid Dandini.

There were catchy tunes, heart-warming moments and plenty of jokes – some are a little cheeky.

The cast members are totally brilliant, bursting onto stage with endless energy and enthusiasm, while sensational singer Jessica Croll, makes the perfect Cinderella.

With help from an endearing and hilarious Buttons (Mark Newnham), she is transformed from rags to riches in front of the audience’s eyes – it truly is spectacular.

But the ugly sisters (Richard Pocock and Harry Hart) are always around to try to steal her handsome prince.

The pair were larger than life and had ridiculously glitzy costumes, plus their comedic timing and jokes had the audience in fits of laughter.

Cinderella’s journey to the ball will blow your mind – but no spoilers allowed.

This year's panto really is a fun-packed show for all the family and is not to be missed.
