Singer makes his debut in Aladdin

Oh no, he isn’t! Well, in fact, he is. Robbie Williams is set to make his panto debut this Christmas in Aladdin.

The 32-year-old singer from Stoke-on-Trent will play a hologram of the genie of the lamp in pantomime at the Regent Theatre in his hometown. But it is rumoured the ex-Take That star will also appear in person.

Robbie will star alongside a cast which includes Vicky Entwistle (Corrie’s Janice Battersby) and his best pal, Rocky Horror star Jonathan Wilkes.

Look out, Jonathan, he’s behind you…
