This year’s Panto Dame has been announced and fans of a certain ITV soap might be familiar with him.
The show will take place this Christmas and tickets for the family show are available to buy now.
Talking about the new outfits he’ll be sporting as Nursie in the pantomime, Meeks said: “It’s so very Blackpool”.
He added: “Glamourous, but not too above itself. My new frocks include one I’m certain all the dads will find very hot indeed… and a little number that is a double tribute to a beloved national institution AND a community at the heart of Blackpool.”
He said: “Sleeping Beauty is my favourite pantomime and it’s so great to be back in Blackpool with Steve and to work with Hayley who I wrote lots for when she was a Dingle in Emmerdale, including some of her first ever scenes!”
Those visiting the theatre to watch Sleeping Beauty can expect lots of fun, music and laughter plus a variety of costumes and special effects as it aims to keep all the family entertained.
With the show being performed around Christmas, there’ll be a seasonal touch too.
Blackpool Grand Theatre has seen a host of names take the Panto Dame spot over the years and this isn’t Philip’s first time as he was Panto Dame in 2016 when he played Widow Twankey in Aladdin.
