Our roving reporter, Joshua, went to meet the stars of this year's panto at Norwich Theatre Royal.

Six-year-old Joshua took a special trip behind-the-scenes, where he spoke to various members of the cast of Sleeping Beauty.

The youngster had prepared a range of truly terrific questions to ask each person during the interview.

First he caught up with Elizabeth Carter, who has the lead role of Patience Midges in the show.

Joshua asked whether the other cast members thought she was lazy because she sleeps a lot and how many times she has to kiss Tim in the show. The answer was four times.

Joshua followed this up by asking if she thought this was 'a little embarrassing' to kiss him and then tried to discover whether she had a boyfriend.

Spoiler alert: she does.
