A GIANT clownfish and human-sized cat met to celebrate a new sponsorship deal for a panto starring dancer Louie Spence.

The Blue Reef Aquarium and Hastings’ White Rock Theatre’s costumed mascots met as they confirmed the aquarium’s support for the theatre’s production of Aladdin.

The celeb will star in the family production which will run from December 12 to December 28.

Lorna Hollister, theatre manager, said: “We are delighted to have Blue Reef Aquarium as one of our sponsors for this year’s magical Pantomime Aladdin.

“It’s great to have a local attraction on board and we look forward to working with the team at Blue Reef on such an exciting production.”
