The third annual London Palladium pantomime to be staged after a near 30-year break will be Snow White.

Headline stars for this year's production have now been revealed, with Dawn French making her panto debut.

She will appear alongside returning leads Julian Clary, Paul Zerdin and Nigel Havers at the world-famous variety theatre. This year's production runs from 8th December to 13th January 2019.

Gary Wilmot has also been announced amongst the cast, alongside Strictly Come Dancing duo Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace. Further names are due to be revealed in the coming months.

French will play the fairy tale's notorious Wicked Queen, with Clary as The Man in The Mirror and Zerdin playing foolish Muddle. Gary Wilmot takes on the staple role of pantomime dame, Mrs Crumble, and Havers as The Understudy. Professional dancers Vincent and Flavia will play the King and Queen.

Tickets for this year's show are now available.

The show will be produced by Qdos who stage dozens of pantomimes across the UK each year, at some of the biggest theatres in operation. The 2017-18 show, Cinderella, recently won a prestigious Olivier Award.
