At one point, we at heat were legitimately considering auditioning to be in Scotty T's pantomime (there were open auditions). Before we remembered that we can't sing, or act, and hate pantomimes.

But we were genuinely considering making the trip to Leeds to watch it – it would have been fab, let’s be real.

But now all our Christmas plans have been well and truly CRUSHED, as he's made the decision to leave the show because of a row about payments.

You can read his full statement below:

Unfortunately I will not be appearing in any future performances of Snow White in Leeds.

White Rose Productions company consisting have continually given me false promises of payment.

At this time, with no contact from the directors of the company with a promise to pay, I have no option but to withdraw from the show

I have been paid only 10% of my fee whilst lending the production over £7000 to cover accommodation and flooring for the venue

It is a sad state of affairs that my team have had to chase the company for assurances that the whole cast would be paid, without receiving them

This matter is now in the hands of my solicitors and I'm not bowing out due to ill health, as has been claimed.

I would like to apologise to everyone who has purchased tickets for the event and I'm so sorry that I will no longer be a part of this performance

I am sad that I have not been able to finish my commitment to the rest of the cast but David Lee today told my management that there was no proviso of payment for me and they had not planned any method of payment

In my view, this whole production has been a scam with no funds for wages from day one and false promises delivered from the directors about funds

I apologise to anyone who was hoping to see me in the performance, but I hope you understand my reasons.
