Peter Kay has asked keyworkers to help him recreate his famous ‘(Is This The Way To) Amarillo’ music video for BBC’s Big Night In.
The 46-year-old has called upon the help of fans to ‘stomp along’ to the original track to show support for the night of fundraising.
Peter Kay shared this tweet to his Twitter page: “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!”

For one night only, BBC Children In Need, BBC One and Comic Relief are coming together for one evening of nonstop entertainment.
The live show will be hosted by Paddy McGuinness, alongside Matt Baker, Zoe Ball, Lenny Henry, and Davina McCall. For the first time in a decade, David Walliams and Matt Lucas will be joining together on television for a new sketch.
Viewers should expect big surprises that money can’t buy and even some live music performances (from the singers’ homes, of course) and lots of famous faces joining together.
The money that is raised by Big Night In will be being split equally between Children In Need and Comic Relief and will go on to support local charities and projects across the UK so that they can continue to provide vital emergency support.
BBC’s Big Night In will air on 23 April at 7 pm on both BBC One and iPlayer.
To get yourself familiar with the hit, we’ve included the iconic video below.
