Final casting has been announced for this year's London Palladium pantomime Dick Whittington.

Emma Williams will take the role of Alice Fitzwarren joining her Half a Sixpence co-star Charlie Stemp as Dick Whittington. Lukus Alexander will play Eileen the cat alongside the rest of the previously announced cast, which includes Julian Clary, Elaine Paige, Ashley Banjo, Diversity, Nigel Havers, Gary Wilmot and Paul Zerdin.

The show is produced by the team behind last year's Olivier-nominated production of Cinderella, which was the first time a pantomime had returned to the Palladium in 29 years.

The pantomime is written by Alan McHugh, directed by Michael Harrison and choreographed by Karen Bruce.

Dick Whittington runs at the London Palladium from 13 December to 14 January, with previews from 9 December.
