It’ll star Saunders as Captain Hook, who will appear in her first ever panto, while Clary will take on the role of Seaman Smee in the production.

“I could not be more delighted to be doing my first panto ever at the Palladium. I am a huge fan of panto and The Palladium always delivers,” said Saunders.

She added: “I wouldn’t want to be in Peter Pan’s tiny soft shoes let me tell you, because I am going to give Hook my all!”

Saunders and Clary will be joined by returning Palladium panto favourites Paul Zerdin, Nigel Havers, Gary Wilmot and Rob Madge, who will play Tink.

Earlier this year in an interview with PinkNews, Madge discussed their Olivier-nominated show My Son’s a Queer.

“It’s a very rebellious thing to have joy, especially in queer stories,” they said. “I hope people leave knowing that queer life, livelihoods can be lovely, and happy and uplifting. There’s nothing scary about it. There’s nothing controversial about it. It’s just another way of living life as a human being.”

The panto will be produced by Michael Harrison for the eighth year running, who’s credits include The Drifters Girl and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
