Recently dumped I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here participant and former Doctor Who actor Colin Baker is to star in a stage adaptation of The Woman In White at Blackpool Grand Theatre.

The chilling adaptation of the Victorian thriller is at the Grand from Monday 28 to Thursday January 31.

The play is based on the detective novel written by Wilkie Collins, which has never been out of print since its first publication in 1860.

The cast bringing the chilling novel to life includes Colin Baker (the sixth incarnation of the universally loved Doctor in Doctor Who and I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here team member), Peter Amory (the evil Chris Tate in Emmerdale) and Grange Hill’s Karen Ford who played the art teacher ‘Miss Booth’ for seven years.

Walter Hartright, a handsome art teacher, is assailed by The Woman in White on a London road at midnight where she pleads with him for his help to prevent her from being taken to an asylum.

She disappears just as suddenly as she appears, but this first unsettling encounter is the beginning of a long journey which takes Walter to the darkest continents of his heart.

Love, suspense and danger all combine to create this haunting mystery of mistaken identities and stolen fortunes, heroism, high drama and volatile passions.

Wilkie Collins was a contemporary and friend of Charles Dickens but outsold him in London and New York in 1860 with his first ever detective novel The Woman in White.
