MODEL Georgia Salpa has angered the producers of a Christmas panto by pulling out of their production a week before opening night.

The 26-year-old had been due to share the role of Queen Kardashian in 'Sleeping Beauty' at the Tivoli Theatre in Dublin.

But producers say they were told on Wednesday that she was pulling out.

"It was specially written for her, and we're pretty angry about her sudden departure, which was beyond their control," producer and 'Ireland AM' presenter Alan Hughes said.

A spokeswoman for the model said: "Georgia is a professional and wanted to do a good job but realised that wasn't going to be possible with commitments she has in the UK."
