Simon Grant shot to recognition when he made his TV debut co-hosting the Saturday Show and Top of the Pops Saturday with Fearne Cotton. This lead to a spell reporting from LA for Top of the Pops before he landed in the BBC’s iconic Broom Cupboard!
His rising popularity saw him present many shows, including Children in Need and Making Your Mind Up along side Sir Terry Wogan. Simon has a love for food and has appeared on Celebrity Master Chef and Celebrity Ready Steady Cook, losing on both occasions!
Simon has appeared in pantomime before but this will be his Beauty and the Beast Bridlington debut, appearing as Pierre the pantomime comic in The Spa’s festive offering.
Making a welcome return for the third time in 12 months will be Ian Parkin as Madam Fifi, the pantomime dame. Audiences will remember Ian from last Christmas when he appeared in Jack & the Beanstalk as King Crumble and then returned later in the year with Four Poofs and a Piano from the Jonathan Ross Show.
Both Simon and Ian will join the original Big Brother winner and 60 Minute Make-Over maestro Craig Phillips in a production which is set to deliver a beast of a pantomime for The Spa this December.
Tickets are available from the Box Office on 01262 678258 or online www.TheSpaBridlington.com Beauty and the Beast opens on Tuesday 18 December until Sunday 6 January 2013.
