Despite her Disney past the 42-year-old is very excited to be in Ipswich’s Snow White Pantomime.

She said: “The majority of my work is filming with Disney productions and last year I did panto for the first time.

“I found it really exciting because the panto is totally different and the theatre environment is different than filming, it is a really good experience.

“The theatre is live so you have to be more active and it is more fun I would say.”
