Panto stars arrive for Dick Whittington photo call

    Dick Whittington is coming Milton Keynes Theatre this Christmas and the stars of the show were in town today for the official photo call.

    Oh no they didn't I hear you cry, but oh yes indeed the stars arrived at the theatre and got into full costume for the show.

    The festive extravagansa starts on Thursday December 8, running through until Sunday January 15, with a number of famous and familiar faces returning to Milton Keynes.

    The performance will certainly have the X-Factor with Stacey Solomon, X-Factor finalist, Loose Women panellist and I'm a Celebrity winning playing Fairy Bowbells, whilst Eastenders' Ronnie Mitchell, Samantha Womack roaming the streets as the evil Queen Rat, whilst Chris Jenkins plays Dick himself.

    No panto is complete without a VSP (very silly person) and Milton Keynes welcomes back the silliest of the lot, Kev Orkian, as Idle Jack, and the show couldn't be doing without a dame, with Kevin Breis playing Sarah the Cook.

    As well as posing for photos, our reporter Stephen Penn caught up with Chris Jenkins, the video of their chat can be seen above.

    The tale follows Dick and his trusty cat Tommy as they arrive in London seeking their fortune, but find the streets aren't really paved with gold.

    They meet Alice Fitzwarren (Hannah Ponting), a merchant's daughter and taking a job for her father things are really looking up, but the evil Queen Rat has other ideas. Will Dick Whittington find his fortune!?

    Tickets are now available from the box office at Milton Keynes Theatre on 0844 871 7652 or at
