Also on his mind was whether the panto they have now fully rehearsed - Sleeping Beauty in Milton Keynes - will open on Saturday as scheduled or be yet another victim of COVID if the city goes in to Tier 3 today... Matt Hancock is on his feet in the House as I type and confirms Buckinghamshire is in the large swathe of south east England that is moving to Tier 3. So no panto this Christmas for Lee... he did however mention that QDOS have contingency plans to move the production to February so we must hope they are able to do so.
