The much-loved local lady wowed TV audiences when she took the top spot in ITV’s smash-hit reality skating show Dancing on Ice alongside childhood friend Dan Whiston. The multi-talented performer also scooped the top prize in Celebrity Stars in Your Eyes and has starred in countless West End productions from Chicago to Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and top TV dramas from Coronation St and Emmerdale to Shameless.

Hayley is overjoyed to be now joining Britain’s Got Talent finalist and family favourite Steve Royle in Sleeping Beauty’s enchanting tale of magic, mayhem and misunderstandings live on the Grand Theatre’s famous stage.

She said: “It’s such a thrill for me to be able to perform in pantomime, not just in my hometown of Blackpool, but in the glorious Grand Theatre. I have performed in many, many pantomimes, but never here at home and I can’t wait to step out on that famous stage. It will also be so wonderful for my little boy to be able to see me on stage at the Grand every day as the Good Fairy at such a special time of year”

Steve added: “I can’t wait to work with Hayley. She’s a great performer and I know we will have loads of fun in panto together.”

    These days, education is of utmost importance. However, not everyone has the time or skills necessary to complete every work for university flawlessly. I made the decision to use homework help as soon as possible to get assistance with writing my essay. This allowed me to successfully complete the semester. I can only image how long it would have taken me to finish such a large amount of work.
