Katie Price will tread the panto floorboards for the first time this Christmas as the Wicked Fairy.


We thought it was very much behind her, after that OTT pink horse costume incident. But it turns out that this Christmas will actually see Katie Price‘s first panto debut. Who knew?!

The former glamour model will be appearing as the evil Wicked Fairy in Sleeping Beauty at the New Victoria Theatre Woking. We’ve got our fingers crossed for an outrageously terrifying costume.



The mum-of-five has revealed her kids are over the moon about her new job. ‘I’m not sure who’s more excited about my role in panto, me or the kids!’ said Katie, to the Mirror.

‘They’re going to enjoy it so much seeing me up on stage, although they might find it strange that I’m being so evil,’ she added. We don’t blame them, we can’t wait to see scary Katie either!

‘Sleeping beauty is one of the kids’ favourite stories and I simply couldn’t resist the opportunity,’ she said of why she jumped at the role. ‘The people of Woking better watch out as I’m coming to getcha!’

Katie will take to the stage for just over a fortnight from Friday 11th December to Sunday 27th December, and be sharing the role with former EastEnders actress Anita Dobson. CBeebies star Ben Faulks, aka Mr Bloom, will also be appearing as a green-fingered Prince Charming.

However, looks like Katie’s already got competition for the festive limelight as ex-husband Peter Andre gets reasy to show off his best tango for Strictly.

We just got a whole lot more excited for Christmas.
