Scouse legend ‘Benidorm’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity’ star Crissy Rock has been announced as ‘Fairy Nuff’ in our upcoming #BrindleyPanto.

She joins Rebecca Lake (Princess Aurora) and Christopher Pym (Prince Harry) who will return to Halton Borough Council venue in Sleeping Beauty.

Crissy is known as one of the UK’s true genius talents with an unique ability to reduce her audiences to tears of laughter with her one woman stand-up shows and to tears of emotion with her film roles.

These have including her extraordinary award-winning performance in director Ken Loach’s masterpiece “Ladybird Ladybird” and more recently her role as Janey York in Benidorm from series one to four.

She has appeared recently The Brindley in ‘Seriously Dead’, where she went down a storm.

With her exploits on ITV’s “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” in 2012, Crissy is certainly making a name for herself and gaining the national recognition she deserves.

The release of her best-selling autobiography “The Heart Within Me Burns” became something of a sensation in 2011, sitting in the top ten of the Sunday Times bestseller list for seven  months and shortly being released as a paperback having hit 35,000 sales.

A run of TV appearances (including 3 show-stopping features on This Morning) fuelled a surge of interest in Crissy and her incredible life to date.

A hiatus in her acting career came when she decided to relocate to Spain specifically to film the Tiger Aspect/ITV comedy “Benidorm” alongside Johnny Vegas, Tim Healey, Steve Pemberton and Sheila Reid.

Crissy’s role as Janey York ran for four hit series and upon leaving the show in 2011, Crissy decided to stay in Benidorm after establishing herself as its top female stand-up comedienne, playing 10 shows a week to packed houses.

Most recent appearances include the role of the Wicked Queen in Snow White at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre as well as a lead role in new comedy show, Dirty Dusting, at Bedworth Civic Hall in 2014. She has also appeared on chat and game shows Come Dine With Me, Loose Women and The Chase and a seventh series of Benidorm as the Solona Manager.

Crissy said: “I am looking forward to working with a great cast in the great venue and so close to home. There is always something so special about panto and I am already excited!”

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for The Brindley, Cllr Phil Harris, said: “Crissy is well loved in the area and beyond and is sure to be popular for all ages.

“Book early and get the best seats in the house for our annual festive Pantomime, full of spectacular scenery, dazzling costumes, hilarious jokes, singlalong songs and fun for all the family!”
