Everybody’s talking about…

Love Island's Curtis, who's managed to snaffle a highly-prized jaunt in the High Wycombe Christmas panto whilst he's still sunning it on the show!

Love or hate it (there have been some heated squabbles in Muddy HQ, but that’s a whole other matter), Love Island is already the TV talking point of the summer – highly attractive twentysomethings ‘get to know eachother’ (it’s a lot of snogging and shagging) in a Mallorçan villa to find love and boost their careers to C-list stardom.

Curtis with brother AJ

Whilst many have been hooked to the ITV2 ratings-winning reality show, the villa’s resident relationship guru turned love rat* Curtis Pritchard has been busy working on the latter. The younger brother of Strictly’s AJ Pritchard (who’s also pulling on the panto tights as Peter Pan at Dunstable’s Grove Theatre) has scored a lead role as Dick Whittington in Wycombe Swan’s Christmas panto, all whilst still living it up in Mallorça- it’s an A+ for his management for that one.

Curtis and Amy 

So many questions: Will there be an influx of millennials at the panto this year? Will Curtis be able to fill Brendan Cole’s (tap) shoes after the New Zealander’s performance in Snow White last year? What’s up with that weird super-imposed grinning Curtis in the promo pics (thinking about how much money he’s going to make, no doubt)? Can Curtis even act?

Considering Dick Whittington is about a young boy seeking fame and fortune, I don’t think much acting will be needed.

*A recap: Curtis had a seemly perfect relationship with ‘half-girlfriend’, air hostess Amy Hart for four weeks, only to dump her after developing feelings for model Jourdan Riane. He then started cracking on with Irish firecracker Maura Higgins, coupled-up with new girl Francesca Allen, and is now back with Maura after a steamy snogging sesh on the terrace. Watch out Widow Twanky, who knows who Curtis will hit on next?


See Curtis in Dick Whittington at Wycombe Swan, Fri 13 Dec – Sun 5 Jan
