Natasha Barnes stars in the titular role alongside Lee Mead, Paul O'Grady, Julian Clary, Count Arthur Strong, Nigel Havers and Amanda Holden.

Stars including Cliff Richard, Gloria Hunniford and Gaby Roslin turned out to support the cast. Des O'Connor, who starred in the last pantomime at the London Palladium in 1985 - which was also Cinderella - was also there.
