David Hasselhoff is taking to the stage for his first show in Nottingham tonight, as pantomime season gets underway in the city.

He is starring as Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the Theatre Royal which opens tonight, but is best known for appearing in the hit show 'Baywatch', in the 1990s.

'The Hoff' helps launch Christmas panto in Nottingham

It may be half a year away, but today marks the launch of Nottingham's star-studded version of Peter Pan at the Theatre Royal this coming Christmas.

The city's very-own Su Pollard is playing the role of the Magical Mermaid when it opens in December.

Although unable to attend the launch, David Hasselhoff – who's playing Captain Hook – sent a message of his own.
