The BBC broadcaster will take the role of Evil Queen Evilene in the pantomime Snow White and the Magic Mirror.

“I’m delighted to have been asked to return to the Garrick this Christmas and be part of what looks set be a lovely family pantomime,” she said.

“Journalists are often accused of only bringing people bad news and this Christmas there will be no good news from me, as this time I’m the baddie and I’m really looking forward to being bad!

“The good people of Staffordshire will see a side of me they’ve never seen before and I look forward to hearing some very loud booing from panto lovers.”

When it comes to treading the boards, Joanne is no stranger to Lichfield Garrick’s stage, having played the Fairy Godmother in the theatre’s 2007 production of Cinderella and Fairy Bow Bells in its 2008 production of Dick Whittington.

Adrian Jackson, the Lichfield Garrick’s artistic director, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Joanne back to the team and look forward to working with her in this very different role.

“Once again we have a very exciting festive treat planned with all the fun of a traditional pantomime, including spectacular scenery and costumes and a dazzling musical score, in a show for the whole family.”

Snow White and the Magic Mirror will run from December 5 to January 5. Tickets start at £12.50 for children and £20 for adults and can be booked online at or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
