PETER Kay fans could land themselves in a starring role alongside the comic as he recreates his iconic "Amarillo" music video" for the BBC's Big Night In.

"(Is This The Way To) Amarillo" by Tony Christie was revived by the Bolton comedian in 2005 for Comic Relief and went on to storm the charts.

Now he is calling fans and "fabulous" key workers to join him by stomping along to the original track to show support for fundraising evening. The evening brings Children in Need and Comic Relief together to raise money in the fight against coronavirus and provide an evening of entertainment during the lockdown.

It will see Peter reunited with his co-star in Phoenix Nights Paddy McGuinness, one of the show's presenters.

To be in with a chance of making it into the final video, the BBC is looking for people to film themselves marching and dancing to the original track and to upload the footage onto social media, tagging the clip with #BigNightInAmarillo.

On Thursday it could be featured on the live show.

The BBC has said The Big Night In aims to "celebrate and reward those going the extra mile to support their communities in these troubled times".

Highlights of the evening will also include The Vicar Of Dibley return to TV screens.

Dawn French will reprise her role as Geraldine during the live charity BBC One programme, which aims to provide an evening of entertainment during the coronavirus lockdown.

The show will be broadcast on BBC One on Thursday April 23 between 7pm and 10pm.
