Homely Amy Winehouse is to star in this years Blackpool Tower's production of Aladdin.
In an inspired coup for the resort, Amy has leapt at an offer to play "Widow Twankey" in the flying carpet/magic lamp romp, this season's star studded Christmas panto extravaganza.
Amy's manager-father was exhuberant, "It will be great therapy for her, she will be returning to her roots" he gushed. Amy was a one time child prodigy, who as well as being a top elocution student by the age of 9, also starred alongside her Great Uncle, Les Dawson, in Cinderella at Scunthorpe Civic many years ago.
The show will certainly be a rip-roaring success, with fellow thespians David Bowie, as Uncle Abanazer, Sue (Hi Dee Hi) Pollard as Wishee Washee, and Gordon "Ramrod" Ramsey, as the lamp. (Don't RUB too hard!!) Ooooh err missus!!
The show runs from Dec.16th to Jan 29th. Further detais at WineyWankey.web or 0800- BEEHIVE
