Vanilla Ice to star in panto at Kent's Central Theatre

Vanilla Ice The rapper is best known for his 1991 hit Ice Ice Baby

Rapper Vanilla Ice will make his panto debut at a Kent theatre.

The 1990s star, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, will play Captain Hook in a production of Peter Pan at the Central Theatre in Chatham.

Ice, whose biggest hit was 1991's Ice Ice Baby, recently starred as a contestant on ITV1's Dancing on Ice.

Tony Hill, the theatre's general manager, said: "Ice is a huge name who I am sure will be a real draw for parents and children alike."

He added: "(He) has never performed in a pantomime before, but I am sure that he will go down as a hit."

The X Factor's Jedward - twins John and Edward Grimes - last year reworked Queen's hit Under Pressure with Vanilla Ice.
