While she hasn’t made her panto debut yet, Una already has some big supporters as her daughter Aoife, and son Tadhg are massive fans of the show.

“My kids are delighted I’ll be in it as they still say funny lines from it around the house,” she shared.

Continuing: “Every girl wants to be a panto fairy and The National Stadium is a perfect panto venue.”

“To be in their 25th anniversary panto is also really special. You don’t get to 25 unless you’re bloomin’ good. I am so excited, oh yes I am.”
