Most recently Michelle has also turned her hand to radio, presenting on Heart FM North East in her native Newcastle.

She said “I am delighted to be playing Aladdin in Harpenden this Christmas. It’s a lovely town and the people seem really nice.

“Aladdin is going to be a fab panto and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Aladdin runs from Friday, December 11, to Tuesday, December 22, and also stars EastEnders original Peter Dean who played Pete Beale in the BBC soap for many years.

Michelle and Peter are joined on stage by BBC Three Counties Radio’s Ernie Almond, local singer Sophie Massie and Harpenden panto favourite Chris Law.
