Well, not the real Aladdin, obviously, but the scrumplicious John Barrowman, who's playing the pantomime character at the SECC in Glasgow between 11th December and 9th January.
I do hope that the Strictly producers are kind to us and give him a Latin dance to show him off at his best. It would be very unfair of them to hide his best attributes with ballroom bow tie and tails.
He's going to be a busy man - they normally film the Christmas special either the Monday before or the Monday after the final, so either way, he's going to have started his run in in panto. I wonder if he'll have to miss a performance to take part. Either way, his professional partner is going to have to come up to Glasgow to train. All I can say is that from 12th December, there is a new train line from Glasgow virtually to my back door. Either of them are welcome to pop round for a cup of tea.
Is anyone else thinking that John and Ola would be a smokin' hot combination which would have something for everyone and she deserves a treat after being partnered with Paul Daniels.
I can't wait!
In the meantime, here's a clip of him singing "Anything you can do, I can do better" with Ruthie Henshall which can be found on You Tube here.
