Comic Peter Kay is to record a charity single for this year's Children in Need appeal, which he says has the potential to be "mildly amusing".

The as yet unnamed track will be accompanied by an all-star video featuring almost famous faces and long forgotten relics of light entertainment that people forgot about circa 1987.

The comedian's cover version of Tony Christie's Is This the Way to Amarillo, released in aid of Comic Relief, was the UK's best-selling single of 2005 despite only making two people laugh and only ever being played at office Christmas parties.

He went on to release two more charity singles, raising funds for Comic Relief and the NSPCC and therefore making sure he isn't just remembered as "that fat one" from Phoenix Nights.

Kay's Amarillo video featured a host of famous faces, among them Sir Michael Parkinson, Ronnie Corbett, Mr Blobby and many other people that aren't liked by the general public.

But the fat Phoenix Nights star has pledged even more celebrities that nobody cares about when the video is unveiled on Children in Need night on 20 November.

"It's taken two years of searching to find Ted Rogers and Dusty Bin - just a shame Ted Rogers was already dead." he said.

The comic's efforts have been applauded by Children in Need chief David Ramsden, who said the charity was "really excited but would prefer if Mr. Kay would just stump up the money from his vast personal forture made from releasing the same old jokes over and over again on DVD".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
