The University of Salford Alumni Peter kay is recreating his hit music video (Is this the way to) Amarillo, 15 years since its release. 

Peter Kay’s Charity re-release of Tony Christie’s original 1972 single, shot to the top of the charts back in 2005.

With Kay being able to get the involvement of the most famous celebs on TV, at the time.

The original video involved stars such as Orville the Duck and Paddy McGuinness, all-dancing alongside Peter Kay.

Now as part of the BBC’s Big Night in, Peter Kay is now asking fans and key workers to get involved, by filming their own attempts at home.  

The Comedian has posted on his Twitter page,  urging people to use the hashtag #BigNightInAmarillo to share their own versions online.

There have already been many attempts.

With a lot of involvement from key workers such as medical workers and supermarket staff. 

Any video that is shared by using the hashtag, will then be in a chance to be shown on national television as part of the BBC’s Big Night In. The programme is part of a special night of Television, celebrating unsung heroes during the current COVID-19 pandemic. 

The show which will air on Thursday the 23rd of April, aims to raise vital money that is needed to help the most vulnerable during this current crisis. 

The fundraising show will also feature contributions from celebs such as Dawn French, who is reviving her well known Vicar of Dibley character.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams are also set to appear with a brand new Little Britain sketch.

The Big Night In will air live at 7pm on Thursday the 23rd of April. For terms and conditions of the Amarillo video, you can visit the BBC website here.
