The show did go on for Perth Theatre’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk after two days of panto performances were cancelled due to a COVID outbreak among the cast.

The colourful extravaganza, running from November 25 to December 31, was called off on Tuesday and Wednesday with organisers getting in touch with ticket-holders.But thanks to the cast’s understudies and a new face filling in, the production has managed to put the disruption ‘behind them’ and enthrall audiences for its final dates.Showing at 2pm and 7pm yesterday, today and Saturday, Tiger Mitchell and Tia Bobbi Henry have stepped in to deliver the lead roles of Jack and the ‘Baddie’ respectively, replacing Kirsty Findlay and Helen Logan.

Joining the cast to save the day as the Mysterious Man is Peter Collins, who returns to Perth Theatre following his roles as Lord Hastings in 2018’s Richard III and Hector in 2019 panto, Sinbad.

The 2022 Jack and the Beanstalk show is written and directed by the show’s panto ‘dame’ Barrie Hunter, who plays Lettie Lou, with the script touching on themes of global warming.But theatre-goers were left disappointed on Tuesday after Perth Theatre announced the cancellation on Facebook just an hour before the curtain was to be raised.Organisers posted: “We apologise for the short notice – the team were putting in their best effort to make the show work with a reduced cast, but it hasn’t been possible.“We’re sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience caused, and we hope you’ll join us in wishing our cast mates a speedy recovery.” But after the good news that the panto would finish its run, chief executive of Perth Theatre and Concert Hall Nick Williams said: “We always strive to give our audiences the best possible

Lisa Snowdon, 50, discusses her health woes as she wards off 'wellness fads' in new year
Express.co.uk about how new year's resolutions push people to pursue “unachievable” goals through “wellness fads”.Lisa explained: “I want to speak out about wellness fads because, in most cases, they are adopted as part of a January ‘new year, new me’ resolution.“Most people set these extreme resolutions, which have good intentions, but are more often than not unachievable and therefore nobody can stick to them.”In a bid to help people understand the inefficacy of some wellness fads, Lisa has partnered with gut health supplement Symprove to design three spoof health fads - The Bowel Counsellor, The Anal Crystal and ‘Bougie Poo-fumée’ candles.The fake methods aim to highlight just how ludicrous some “wellness fads” can be and why it is important to look after your gut and keep a healthy balanced lifestyle.Lisa elaborated: “This is why I wanted to work with Symprove again as they have such a great way of talking openly about our tummies, guts and bowel movements.“In our partnership, we wanted to spoof some of the funny and more extreme wellness fads that are out there to show that you don't have to go to extreme lengths to look after your gut.”The former Strictly Come Dancing star went on: “Although I personally love crystals, candles and counselling - it’s obvious that counselling for your bowel doesn’t exist, poo candles are simply just hilarious and putting crystals in any body orifice is definitely not recommended.“Symprove and I created these health fads to prove that nobody needs to go that far.“Instead, I believe that making smaller, more realistic changes to your daily routine, can have a bigger impact on your general wellbeing.”Elsewhere in the interview, Lisa opened up about her own gut health and how exercise
