Celebrity Big Brother star Austin Armacost joins the cast of Jack and His Giant Beanstalk, an ‘adults-only’ pantomime
Austin is taking over the lead after Geordie Shore star Scotty T pulled out at the last minute.
“It was all very last minute and apparently due to illness,” writes The Sun Online.
“They are all annoyed as the show starts in three days.”
Jack and His Giant Beanstalk is touring the UK this month, but so far the tickets have been moving slow.
