An adult panto in Wrexham has been saved after CBB star, Austin Armacost saves the day.
Geordie Shore star Scotty T pulled out of an adult panto over the weekend, just four days before the opening night, leaving the show in jeopardy, but CBB star, Austin Armacost was at hand to save the day. A source close to the show, said, “Scotty pulled out with no warning leaving the cast without a star.”
Speaking to THEGAYUK, Austin said, “I got a call at 3 on Saturday from the producer and by 4 I was running lines at home. Sunday morning I was in rehearsals.”
Austin, who is known to not hold back on what he thinks, took a swipe at Scotty, saying, “It’s so sad when people can’t fulfil their obligations” before assuring punters who had already bought tickets that, “the show is coming together really well!”.
According to sources, Scotty had to pull out of the show “due to illness” and that the cast “are all annoyed as the show starts in three days.”
The cast includes BGT star, Danny Beard and Voice star Divina De Campo.
Austin told us, “Working with these 3 drag queens is entertaining as fuck! The show is going to be a non-stop laughing, raunchy, filthy, display of quirkiness! So glad to be a part of this cast as we are all working very hard!”
The show is to take place from the 22nd January at the William Aston Hall in Wrexham.
