Sky’s fairytale TV movie Cinderella: After Ever After brings us an impressive line-up of top UK acting talent to our screens this Christmas eve. Starring Walliams as an extremely vain Prince Charming, alongside Sian Gibson (Cinderella), Celia Imrie and Tom Courtenay. Ellen Thomas plays The Fairy Godmother who helps Cinderella to the ball and meet her Prince Charming, but in this version she has very limited magic abilities.
Sky says: “All fairy tales end with ‘happy ever after’ but what happens after ever after? The anarchic 60-minute Christmas special begins where the fairy tale ends; Cinderella has just married her Prince Charming, but soon has a rude awakening when she realises married life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when you have an image-obsessed, floss-dancing, hip-hop rapping husband. Perhaps a glass slipper fitting your foot is not sufficient grounds for a lifelong commitment after all?
