Family Life: Panto cast share their remedies; Body and Soul.


BACON butties don't cure a hangover!

Oh, yes they do, says former Gladiator Diane Youdale. We asked Diane and fellow members of the cast of Aladdin at Middlesbrough Theatre to share their remedies.

You might not be able to stomach it, but party-going Teessider Diane - the original Gladiator Jet and star of this year's Middlesbrough panto - swears by it.

"A fried egg and bacon butty," will be her pick-me-up after the New Year bash.

Aladdin's musical director, Mark Dawson, goes a plateful further. "A full English breakfast," is his solution.

Teesside and Radio Tees presenter, Alex Hall, who plays the Fairy Of The Ring, prefers tea to magic cures. "Lots of cups," is her answer.

Craig Phillips, the first winner of Channel Four's Big Brother, who plays Wishee Washee, takes his hangover cure seriously. "Lots of vitamin pills in water," he tells us.

Meanwhile Liz Cooper, marketing chief at the Forum Theatre in Billingham where panto Goldilocks And The Three Bears runs until January 4, recommends milk and pain killers.

"Have a glass of milk before you leave the house for your night out. When you return, take two pain killers with a glass of water."
