Panto star Zoe keeps fit for show's finale

First published in News

A PANTO star has kick-started her New Year exercise regime at a gym set to close for refurbishment.

Zoe Birkett, who is playing Princess Beauty in Sleeping Beauty, at Darlington Civic Theatre, enjoyed a work out in the Pulse Suite at the town’s Dolphin Centre.

The former Pop Idol runner-up is aiming to stay fit for the last few shows of the pantomime, which runs until Sunday, January 20.

It has been receiving rave reviews from audiences and critics.

The Pulse Suite will be closed between February 4 and March 4, with a temporary gymnasium to be set up elsewhere in the centre.

she was on Flop Idol with Gareth gates and Will young, and she's been scraping the barrel of fame ever since, I wish Darlington will do itself a favour and stop embarrasing itself with 15 minutes of fame stars, are we that desperate??? We also have a traveling community to be proud of, lets focus on these people if you want to keep the out of town visitors away!
