THE cast and crew for this year's festive pantomime in Billingham have been putting the finishing touches to Peter Pan.

Hollyoaks and Waterloo Road star Ben-Ryan Davie will be swapping the North West for some swashbuckling high-jinks when he takes on the starring role of eternal youth in the shape of the eponymous Peter Pan.
