The Gazette: Dan’s The Man For Home Fitness Fans

December 22nd, 2015

bpoolgazette15aHe spent 10 years helping celebrity skaters shape up and slim down while competing on Dancing On Ice. Now Blackpool’s Dan Whiston hopes to get people off their sofas to dance on carpet as he releases his own fitness DVD.

… And where Dan’s used to being the one doing the teaching, thanks to his Dancing On Ice professional role, the skate’s been on the other foot in Pantoland.

“The chance to work with panto veterans like Su Pollard and Steve Royle is lovely too,” he said. “Normally, it’s the celebrity I work with who’s learning something new, but with this it’s been me doing the learning. Su’s even bought a copy of the DVD, Steve too, and it’s lovely to have their support.”

Snow White 2015: ‘Downsgate Centre’ Review

December 17th, 2015

snowwhite15kkLeaving the Grand Theatre, raspy of throat and sparkling of eye, I mused on the longevity of pantomime – after all, it’s 50 years plus since I went to my first one with my Mum and Dad and little brother.

Crazy thing is, I still love ‘em. And judging by the reaction of the opening night audience, I’m not the only one.

Snow White offers a great deal of the old fashioned panto style, including lots of interaction with the audience – much of it instigated by Steve Royle as Muddles, and Jamie Steen as his mother, Nurse. It certainly resonated with the youngsters (and the young at heart), who, like me, were probably losing their voices by the finale.

… Su Pollard was also first-class as an extremely boo-and-hiss-worthy Wicked Queen whose costumes were glitteringly gorgeous (don’t touch the frock…. Leave the frock alone).
