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