Gok said: “I’m really excited to be heading to Southend this Christmas and working alongside the hilarious and unique Brian Conley again is a dream come true.

"Brian and I had a great time working together on our last panto, so I can’t wait to be reunited to find out what mayhem and ad-libs we can bring to Robinson Crusoe and give audiences a truly fabulous and very funny show.”
