Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell is an iconic fairy figure every child has encountered at some point or another.

So, the question is, who’s likely to be able to match the fantastic performance of Julia Roberts as the fairy in blockbuster Hook.

Brit Award winner Paloma Faith is to play Tinkerbell in a new TV version of Peter Pan.

The Belfast bound singer will be joined in the ITV show by Stanley Tucci, who will play Captain Hook, and Laura Fraser as Mrs Darling. The updated version will begin in the modern-day Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The two-hour drama is written by Adrian Hodges and will star two relative unknowns as Peter Pan and Wendy Darling – Zac Sutcliffe and Hazel Doupe – and also include new characters not in the original.

Filming is taking place in Luxembourg, London and Dorset.

Paloma will be playing Belsonic at Custom House Square on Thursday, August 20.
