Ain’t nothing like a dame

Slap on the grease paint, hoick up your skirt and channel your inner Princess Margaret. Muddy meets Reading's irrepressible panto dame Paul Morse.

Muddy caught up with him for a quick-fire, giggly chat before the festive fun begins…

Double trouble… Cbeebie’s demi-god Justin Fletcher and award-winning dame Paul Morse

Who taught you to walk in heels?

I should say my dad, but he’ll kill me. I actually learned how to walk in heels at drama school. Panto is such a big earner for actors, we had panto classes. I never imagined I would become a Dame. I had my eye on the Buttons role, but the teachers said I was one of the best dames they’d ever had. I never wear stilettos though, they’re an absolute killer.

    I have been the recipient of both Miss Dolly, McPhee, Twankey’s careers and I can tell you Paul Morse made me laugh through both, which is a gift!

      Panto-tastic! One of the funniest of people I have ever had the pleasure of chatting too, Barbara. Can’t wait for Aladdin.

    Never tire of watching him preform year after year, Panto after Panto, he steals the stage by his mere presence, love you Paul and can’t wait to see the show this year!
