The former MTV presenter has received poor reviews since their first preview and it seems the shows producers have noticed Blackwoods unpopularity.
However the official Twitter account of the show did tweet about Blackwood and refer to him as ‘our donkey’ so maybe it’s too soon to have a laugh at what may be the shortest and worst theatre career of anyone, ever!
Our Donkey Richard Blackwood went head to head with Kung Fu Panda himself, Jack Black, on the red carpet yesterday! http://bit.ly/lmB5K5

And even though Blackwood has squashed the rumours , if Cheryl Cole the nations sweetheart, can get the X Factor boot, then so can Richard Blackwood.
Hey People, I know their have been vicious rumours about me not doing Shrek, just to say they're not true at all! Haters in Theatre lol deep

The musical opens in a week, will we see a new actor play donkey or will Richard Blackwood still be making an ass of himself?
