EastEnders’ Kara Tointon has revealed how much she’s missing boyfriend and former co-star on the soap Joe Swash as he works on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

Joe – who was crowned King of the Jungle in 2008 – is co presenting I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here Now!

Kara told The Sun: “I am missing him while he’s in Australia.

“I would have loved to go with him but I couldn’t because of work. He has this zest for life and whenever I’m in his company I’m at my happiest.”

The pair are set to play Snow White and Prince Charming at Bristol’s Hippodrome this Christmas.

Meanwhile, Gavin and Stacey star Joanna Page is set to play Cinderella at Woking’s New Victoria Theatre.

She said: “I played Cinderella last year and it’s going to be lovely to do it again, sing pop songs, dance, run around the stage and wear pretty ballgowns so I’m looking forward to it,” she said.

“All through the year, I do comedy or a serious shows – I never really get the chance to sing pop songs or do what you got you into the business in the first place, so if somebody’s happy to let me sing and dance on stage, then I’d happily do it every Christmas!”

Both actresses joined Happy Days’ Henry Winkler this week to launch the panto season.
