Superstar David Hasselhoff, best known for his roles of Michael Knight in Knight Rider and Mitch Buchanan in the most-watched TV show in history, Baywatch, is starring as baddie Captain Hook in this year's pantomime at the Manchester Opera House.

Peter Pan is running from Saturday 8th December 2012 to Sunday 13th January 2013.

On making his Manchester panto debut, David said: "Get ready Manchester! The Hoff is coming for Christmas with his friend Peter Pan.

"I've been to Manchester before and fell in love with the city so I'm looking forward to spending some more time with the Mancunians."

The Opera House is celebrating its 100th year on Boxing Day.
