CBeebies Panto: Strictly Cinderella

Oh yes they do! Familiar faces from the children’s channel perform the panto that transports the glass slipper tale to the ballroom. Katrina Bryan from Nina and the Neurons stars as Cinders with Alex Winters as Prince Charming.

It also features Strictly’s Artem Chigvintsev and a quartet of judges. Watch for Phil Gallagher (aka Mister Maker) and Justin Fletcher as the ugly sisters.

About this programme

The CBeebies presenters host their annual pantomime extravaganza, which mixes the traditional story with a certain Saturday night TV show as Prince Charming enters a dance competition - only to be given the lowest score ever by the four judges. Later in the woods, he meets a beautiful girl who teaches him a few steps - but when she disappears, he decides he must see her again, so he holds a royal ball for everyone in the land.
