BLUE singer Antony Costa can be seen in the Grand Opera House pantomime Beauty And The Beast in York until Sunday.

He is playing the show's transformative role, turning from North London-voiced Prince to echo-voiced Beast in the Three Bears Productions panto, singing a version of Rag'n'Bone Man's Human in the high point of his performance.

Costa is starring alongside the likes of Strictly Come Dancing's Debbie McGee's good fairy and Home And Away soap star Lynne McGranger's evil sorceress in his second appearance in quick succession at the York theatre, having played petty crook turned gardener Roger Meadows in Ruth Rendell's thriller A Judgement In Stone in the autumn.
