Olivia Colman to make her panto debut

Olivia Colman is joining an all-star cast for Cinderella: A Comic Relief Pantomime For Christmas which will be broadcast on BBC Two on Christmas Eve.

She will play the Fairy Godmother alongside Guz Khan as Buttons, Tom Hollander as Baron Hardup, Helena Bonham Carter as Lady Devilia, Anya Taylor-Joy as Cinderella and Rege-Jean Page as Prince Charming.

Jimmy Akingbola will play Dandini while Daisy May and Charlie Cooper will appear as the Evil Step Sisters.

 Quentin Blake has created a host of original hand-drawn illustrations, helping bring the panto to life.

Producers are promising surprises and cameos, including an incredibly famous person wearing an incredibly unconvincing horse costume!
