The singer and reality TV star from Liverpool had a tour of the Oldswinford-based hospice and chatted with patients and staff as well as posing for pictures.

Christopher said: "I am absolutely thrilled to be playing Captain Hook in the panto this year for Mary Stevens Hospice. The hospice holds a great place in my heart, after friends and family have been cared for here.

"The hospice does a lot for the community and I am just so pleased that 100 per cent of the profits from the panto go to the hospice, which is one of the main reasons why I am so happy to be involved."

Charlie Bullock, who will be playing the lead role of Peter Pan, added: "I can't wait to play Peter Pan in Mary Stevens Hospice panto. I decided to be a part of the panto as I wanted to give my time for the individuals and nurses who for everyone else and I wanted to give something back to them. I am very excited."
