The stars are all set to shine in Chesterfield’s panto, which runs until January 4.

Cinderella is running at the Pomegranate Theatre in the town.

Camilla Dallerup, who won the glitter ball in Strictly Come Dancing in 2008, will be cha-cha-charming the crowds as Fairy Godmother.

She said: “I’m really excited. There is very glamorous dancing and sparkle in this production.”

Put-downs and withering looks aplenty will be in the capable hands of the Ugly Sisters, played by Oliver Gray and Dean Horner.

The colourful twosome have been out and about round town, meeting the public at Casa Hotel, Chesterfield Bowl, Marks and Spencer, Whittington Primary School and visiting the panto sponsors Stagecoach Chesterfield.

The Ugly Sisters had a great time at Chesterfield Library where they presented children’s storytime, reading Cinderella and helping the kids decorate some big pants.

Katy Coysh, a member of staff at the library, said: “The children loved it and after their storytime they got busy colouring the bloomers which we shall be putting up very soon!”

Chesterfield Library runs a children’s book group for ages 8-12 every second Friday of every month apart from August and they take place between 5.30pm and 7pm.
