Ricky K, who reached the latter stages of the ITV show in 2014, plays Simple Simon in Jack and the Beanstalk running from Friday, December 9, to Saturday, December 31.

He said: “I am playing Jack’s brother and I love him like I love all my family. But I end up doing all the tasks for Jack. Simple Simon is the comedy character.

“Since the days when my modelling career has gone down, I have realised that comedy was for me. I like to make people laugh, I like them to have a good time.
