Ipswich: Blue Peter legend Peter Duncan arrives to kick-start panto season - oh yes he does!

HI HO, hi ho, it’s off around town they go – albeit in a luxury Hummer rather than a traditional fairytale carriage.

The cast of this year’s Regent Theatre pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs got their first look at what will be their home from December 21 until 30.

“I haven’t been to Ipswich Regent since Tonight’s The Night in 2006, it’s very nice to be back,” said EastEnders and Dancing on Ice star Sam Attwater who plays Prince Charming.

Snow White Sapphire Elia, added: “I can’t wait. I’ve done Snow White before and loved every minute of it. I love panto and every family should go and see it, it’s part of the experience of Christmas.”

It’s a happier role, with a happier ending, for Sapphire, known to millions as Mia Macey from Emmerdale.
