There was lots of “Hello sailor” yesterday as Torchwood star John Barrowman met up with The Krankies again.

Glasgow-born John was back in his home town to launch Robinson Crusoe And The Caribbean Pirates at the tall ship Glenlee.

He and Krankies Ian and Janette Tough teamed up last year in Aladdin and they will be reunited for the SECC panto from December 17 to January 7.

In fact, John can’t wait to jump into bed with them.

He said: “I’m Robinson and my twin is Jimmy Crusoe. It’s like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in Twins.

“My dad is Captain Crusoe played by Ian. There is a big bedroom scene where we all go to bed. That will be hysterical.”
