The Bolton comedian is recreating his iconic music video.
Ahead of his comeback on BBC’s Big Night In, comedy legend Peter Kay is recreating his brilliant Amarillo music video… But it turns out, he needs some help.
Fifteen years after firing up the charts with Tony Christie, Peter Kay is looking to fans and key workers to get involved in the recreation, in lieu of the previous guest stars Michael Parkinson and Ronnie Corbett, who participated back in 2005 to help raise money for Comic Relief.
In a call out on his official Twitter, his representatives said: “Calling all Peter Kay fans!
“Peter is recreating his iconic Comic Relief music video to Tony Christie’s smash hit, “(Is This The Way To) Amarillo” and this time he wants to include you!
“All in aid of the BBC’s Big Night In, Peter wants you stomping along to the original track to show your support for the night of fundraising.
“To be in with a chance of making it into his final video, we’re looking for people to film themselves marching and dancing to the original track (filmed landscape) and to upload the footage onto social media, tagging the clip with #BigNightInAmarillo”
The comedian and his team will be selecting clips that have been submitted for the final video, and it’s sure to be a heartwarming affair with videos from fans and key workers across the nation during isolation being included.
BBC’s Big Night In premieres on BBC One on April 23 at 7pm, and will see Peter Kay, Paddy McGuinness, Catherine Tate, Gary Barlow and many, many more take part in the fundraiser. The show will also participate in the weekly #ClapForCarers at 8pm.
