A host of television stars including Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh took to the Showdome at The O2 this weekend to attend the premiere of In The Night Garden Live 2014.

Marsh was joined by celebrities including EastEnders’ Jacqueline Jossa, celebrity cook Gizzi Erskine, comedian Mark Watson and more for the launch of the show from Mino Entertainment.
