Former EastEnders star Vicky Alcock is joining Darth Vader to auction off some celebrity goodies in the battle against child abuse.

The Bromley actress, who has also performed in the likes of Doctor Who and Call the Midwife, is hosting a family fun day this month at the Fox Pub in Keston to support children's charity the NSPCC.

Memorabilia from television shows such as Holby City, Emmerdale, and The Voice is all going to be sold to raise money for the cause.

Alcock, 48, said: “I have been an ambassador for the NSPCC for nearly ten years. The support they give to children is vital. The welfare of any child is extremely important to me.

“I am hoping to raise lots of money – I have some amazing raffle prizes and some very special items including signed items from Sir Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue!”

David Prowse, who played the Jedi-turned dark lord in the original Star Wars films, is also set to appear at the event. 

But rather than fighting Luke Skywalker he is probably more likely to be found helping out with the raffle, listening to some live music, and tucking into a hot dog.
