Love Island star Curtis Pritchard will come to High Wycombe this December - as he takes on the lead role of this year's panto at the Wycombe Swan.

From Love Island to love on the streets of London Town, the professional dancer and reality TV star will be playing Dick Whittington in this year's show.

Curtis will be swapping the sunshine of Majorca to spend Christmas in High Wycombe in for the new production of the tale which sees Dick Whittington and his trusty cat seek fame, fortune and happiness as they journey to become the Lord Mayor of London, guided by the magical Fairy Bow Bells.

In 2018, Pritchard appeared alongside his brother AJ in the celebrity version of the Channel 4 show Hunted.

Speaking before heading to the Love Island villa to compete in this year’s ITV2 show, Curtis said: “I’m so happy to be making my professional pantomime debut this year, and am delighted to be part of such an important part of so many families Christmases”.
