Lily James, David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Miranda Hart and Lenny Henry are among the cast of this year’s BBC Two festive panto.

Beauty and the Beast has been turned into this year’s show, with the help of writers Ben Crocker, Dawson Bros and Richard Curtis.

James will star as Beauty, alongside Oliver Chris as The Beast.

The cast will also include Kiell Smith-Bynoe, Sian Gibson, Susan Wokoma, Celia Imrie, Simon Bird, Pam Ferris and Tom Rosenthal.
