Britain’s Got Talent impressionist Paul Burling and ventriloquist Dawson Chance have signed up to join Strictly’s Craig Revel Horwood in panto in Dartford.

The dance judge returns to The Orchard Theatre, where he played a sell-out run in Snow White two years ago, and will play the dastardly Captain Hook in Peter Pan.

Craig said: “After five pantomime seasons in the role of the Wicked Queen and terrifying poor Snow White, I’m delighted to set my sights on Neverland in pursuit of Peter Pan.”

He added: “I had such a great time in the production of Snow White at The Orchard Theatre two years ago and I am thrilled to be returning for another Christmas season next year.”

Paul Burling shot to fame when he reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2010 with his impressions, which included Harry Hill.

Ventriloquist, actor and comedian Dawson Chance has appeared in a number of TV shows, including his own Take a Chance and Dawson’s Funny Old Farm, and at three Royal Variety Performances.

Peter Pan is at The Orchard Theatre from December 12 to January 3. Go to or call 01322 220000.
