All I Want for Christmas with MK Theatre's panto stars: Ben Stock talks

As one of the Ugly Sisters in Cinderella, Ben Stock gets to wear the biggest costumes, if not the most beautiful!

The boo-meister might cause trouble in the pantomime, starring as Tess, but he isn't nearly as naughty off the stage. He got festive with Total MK's questions...
