Mayflower panto star Stefanie Powers stopped at Heathrow
The Mayflower’s Fairy Godmother has been denied access back into the UK by immigration officials today.
Despite attempts at wand waving, Stefanie Powers has been unable to persuade officials she needs to fly back to Southampton for tonight’s show.
Stefanie, best known for her role in US TV hit Hart to Hart, was traveling back to London from Los Angeles following the death of her mother.
Although initially granted entry when she first arrived for rehearsals for Cinderella: The Musical Pantomime late last year, it now appears Stefanie’s work permit has been lost.
Producers and lawyers are currently wrangling with the UK Border Agency and hope to have her back in time for tomorrow’s matinee performance.
