WHEN Joel Dommett - star of TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – announced that he was appearing at Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal next month, tickets sold out within just a few hours.

The comedian has unexpectedly had to re-schedule the show from May 20 to May 5, which has meant that some tickets are now available for sale on a first-come-first-served basis.

Everyone who booked tickets for the original show has now been contacted but some people were unable to make the new date - resulting in the release of a limited number of tickets.

“We apologise to anyone who can no longer attend the show,” said theatre chief executive Clare Allen.

“It was due to circumstances totally beyond our control and we appreciate that some people will be very disappointed.”

She added: “Dommett has become a household name since his impressive and engaging performance in the jungle. We are really looking forward to hosting the show and expect these re-released tickets to sell very quickly,”

Tickets are £15 or £10 for concessions from 01748-825252.
