It’s (not) Chico time for Skegness

FLAMBOYANT entertainer Chico was scheduled to play this year’s Illuminations Switch On but has pulled out due to conflicting obligations.

Chico, who came to fame with his infuriatingly catch song ‘It’s Chico Time’ on the X Factor is currently amazing Dancing On Ice audiences with his skilful routines.

It is believed his success on the show and likely inclusion on a subsequent tour has resulted in his Skegness cancellation.

Skegness and District Chamber of Commerce members were disappointed to hear the news.

Chairman Glenis Brown said: “It’s sad - I think Chico would have appealed to all age groups.”
