CARLEY Stenson was on ITV’s This Morning promoting Shrek the musical’s Christmas song for charity.

She performed Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, in aid of Centrepoint, an organisation for homeless young people, for hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield with Dean Chisnall, who plays Shrek.

The former Billinge resident posted on Twitter that she was excited about meeting the pair and she even gave Philip one of her cookies.

She tweeted: “Such a fun time at @itvthismorning. can’t believe my virgin cookie was ate by the schofe x

As she took over from Kimberley Walsh to play Princess Fiona in May this year, she admitted in an interview with MailOnline that she prefers acting on stage to her previous work on Hollyoaks.

She said: “I just love how immediate the audience reaction is with theatre, you don’t get that with television.”
