Performed on the world’s biggest pantomime stage roughly the size of four London Palladium’s, the show will also have two mobile stages which will travel around the 6000-capacity arena as the yellow brick road.

The show will arrive in Aberdeen on December 17 before travelling to Glasgow on December 27 and 28.

“I’ll be an acrobatic, laser wielding wizard and I might even bring the Children in Need Rickshaw along for the ride.

“It’s a show packed with spectacular entertainment and fun with a brilliant script and cast to boot. I can’t wait for my festive tour on the yellow brick road!“

Jenny Ryan, also known as The Vixen on game show The Chase said: “The spectacular size of the show is breathtaking. There are giant video screens with animated computer graphic backgrounds and an ice-covered Emerald city skating scene that is magical.

“What’s also fun is that I am known as one of telly’s top TV quizzers, yet I have to contend with a man with no brains at all.”

New comedy star Jordan Conway who will play the Scarecrow, is the only cast member to have appeared in all four World’s Biggest Panto arena shows.

Jordan said: “I can’t wait to get started, nothing beats the sound of thousands of family members all laughing together.”

Charlie Quirke, known for his role as Travis in Birds of a Feather, will play the role of the Tin Man

He said: ”I’m excited to be performing again in another spectacular WBP production and touring to these great venues creating this wonderful character.”
