Channel 4 comedy writer Brian Luff’s brand new script puts a fresh, contemporary spin on the story while at the same time delivering a traditional family panto with all the usual trimmings. It’s crammed with fast, snappy wordplay, accessible modern references and good old fashioned slapstick. There’s something for all the family! The emphasis is very much on comedy, which is provided by a daft duo of television producers called Mr Muggsy and Mr Puggsy who orchestrate an X-Factor style talent show at the palace as well as spending most of the time trying to escape the romantic clutches of the Ugly Sisters.
