A FORMER panto star, sacked from his role as Prince Charming after it emerged he appeared in adult movies, has missed out on a porn ‘Oscar’.

Craig Chalmers, who performs under the name Ryan Ryder, shot to fame after making it to the finals of a BBC talent show Any Dream Will Do.

But 32-year-old was axed from a Dunfermline production of Cinderella after an anonymous tip off from a member of the public.

The Scot was nominated for the for the Best Foreign Male award at the AVN Awards - known as the Oscars of porn.

Mr Chalmers, whose films include Hotel Voyeur and Fade Into You, had previously said: he was “delighted with the nomination.”

His wife Jennifer Smith, who performs under the name Jasmine Jae, was also up for Best Foreign female.

But at a glitzy ceremony in Las Vegas at the weekend it was revealed both had lost out on the gong.

Craig lost out to Italian porn veteran Rocco Siffredi who has starred in more than 1,300 films.

Meanwhile his wife was pipped to the post by French star of Ultimate French Girls 3, Anissa Kate.

The AVN Awards are sponsored by the adult video industry trade magazine AVN and is aired on American TV.

It was two years ago when Mr Chalmers lost his leading role in Cinderella with his X-rated revelation also seeing him axed by his talent agency.

The Alhambra Theatre in Dunfermline even removed his face from the poster for the show and replaced him with CBBC star James Mackenzie.

Now Edinburgh-born Chalmers, who was also part of the short-lived boyband No Reason and an all-male strip group G-Force, is also turning his hand to producing adult movies.
