Kat Moon actress gives 'unforgettable performance'
EastEnders star Jessie Wallace will take centre stage in the soap’s Disney-inspired Children In Need performance by singing Let It Go from the hit film Frozen.
Jessie, who plays Kat Moon in the BBC1 soap, will belt out the classic tune in what is described by EastEnders as an “unforgettable performance”.
As the cast perform a wonderful Disney medley celebrating Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary for Children in Need, Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean) delivers a “break-taking performance” as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She is joined by Davood Ghadami (Kush Kazemi) as Gaston and Nitin Ganatra (Masood Ahmed) as LeFou.
Meanwhile, Lorraine Stanley (Karen Taylor) will play the Genie from Aladdin. There will be lots of great special effects on show, including a flying carpet as Tilly Keeper (Louise Mitchell) and Zack Morris (Keegan Baker) play Jasmine and Aladdin.
Tilly Keeper said: “It was a dream come true to be a Disney Princess for BBC Children in Need! We had so much fun filming the performance; it was such a special day. Let’s hope we all raise lots of money on the night for this fantastic charity.”
Zack Morris said: “Never in a million years did I think I would be playing Aladdin as I danced round Albert Square. I had so much fun taking part and it’s such an honour to be part of something so special. I really hope it helps to raise lots of money for BBC Children in Need.”
The musical performance will culminate with EastEnders favourite Letitia Dean (Sharon Watts) interacting with the “True Original” Mickey Mouse in an effort to share the magic.
The whole performance will be part of BBC Children in Need Appeal Night, which starts on November 16th on BBC1 at 7.30pm.
EastEnders continues on BBC1.
