Wasn't much into the Spice Girls BUT sat very near Mel C at a "Superstar" recording. Now, if she did panto, I'm there and drooling in the front row ('m assuming that is the "drool" emoji!).
Mel C is pretty awesome! She's definitely the best singer of the lot - never got to see the Spice Girls live unfortunately, but I did get to see Mel C do a solo show at the Shepherd's Bush Empire a couple of years ago, and she was great.
With tickets supposedly on sale today at 10am I'm surprised there's not been more pre-publicity for this show... not a whiff of a star name, or info on ticket prices even. The arena panto has almost stolen their thunder a little with their not too shabby casting announcement yesterday (maybe not to everyone's taste but it's a decent line-up for an evenings fun).

Also rather keen to know the cast at these prices, but for future reference... book via Palladium or www.cinderellapalladium.com/tickets/ or SEE for no booking fees (the latter doesn't let you select seats, the others do, though all are powered by SEE I believe!).
Would be good to know at least some of the cast before booking. The different rumours create completely different tones for what the show would be like. Time of course by that it will be sold out. Annoying.

Just looked at the ticket prices. I know they are pretty standard West End prices nowadays but still...YIKES! I remember about 10 years ago you could the best seats for the Birmingham pantos didn't even reach £30! (Which of course have gradually crept up since to £47 for Dick Whittington this year!).
But still, the West End is the West End and I'm sure Qdos will deliver something good. And if it is the cast as mentioned above, then Julian Clary and Paul Zerdin definitely will! I can't speak for Lee Mead as I haven't seen him in panto before, and I only saw Paul O'Grady as the Childcatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
