Channel 5's new live show has some familiar faces taking to the stage
Imagine walking into a theatre, and finding the lead characters from nine of your favourite TV programmes standing together on stage. Not great for suspending disbelief in their storylines, maybe, but exciting nonetheless – and even more so when you're under 10.
On tour across the UK for the fourth time, Channel 5's Milkshake! is weaving a host of its popular characters into 'The Magical Storybook', directed by presenter Derek Moran. With Bob the Builder, Noddy, Toyland Detective, Fireman Sam, Shimmer and Shine, Pip Ahoy!, Winnie and Wilbur, Wissper and, of course, the Little Princess (pictured) all making an appearance. It's going to be one busy dressing room – especially with Milkshake monkey also along for the ride.
This time around, the music, singing and dancing will be centred around fairytales familiar to everyone, from toddlers upwards. 'It's a magical show full of audience participation,' says Moran, 'and I think people will love the classic fairytale storylines, the songs and seeing lots of their favourite Milkshake! characters live on stage.'
