David McLelland plays Prince Charming in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and his daughters are delighted he is in the show.

He said: “They are all over fairy tales and the fact that I am playing a Prince in one of their favourite ever stories means the absolute world to them.

“I’ve done pantomime since the late 1990s and have questioned, especially as I have my own children, why I should be thousands of miles away entertaining other people’s children.

“But I took a year off, and I was bored that Christmas, I was missing. And my eldest asked if I was going to be wearing any silly clothes. She was disappointed and so I made the decision to do it again.”
