Bolton Goes Crazy For Amarillo – City Key Workers Take Up Peter Kay’s Challenge


Bolton has officially gone mad for Amarillo as locals begin to recreate the iconic video of Peter Kay.

The comedian called on key workers to make their own versions of his 2005 cover and they responded en masse.

Nurses, firefighters, binmen, and caregivers are among the primary workers for making their own videos featuring the classic song.

This comes when Peter announced his plans to air a special version of the video at the BBC’s next Big Night In – a special television party to celebrate unsung heroes and raise funds for vulnerable people during the coronavirus pandemic.

The original sequence was created to cover Tony Christie’s Amarillo (Is This The Way To) and included stars like Ronnie Corbett, Michael Parkinson and Paddy McGuinness walking through a range of backdrops.

A message on the social media pages of Peter Kay has appealed to all who wish to be included in his new video.

He said, “Calling all the fans of Peter Kay and all the fabulous key wokers!

“Peter is recreating his iconic music video for Comic Relief on Tony Christie’s hit,” (Is This The Way To) Amarillo “and this time, he wants to include you!

“All for the benefit of BBC’s Big Night In, Peter wants you to go to the original track to show your support for the fundraising night.

“To have a chance to make this his last video, we are looking for people to film themselves while walking and dancing on the original track (filmed landscape) and to download the images on social networks, tagging the clip with #BigNightInAmarillo

“Then on April 23, you may well see your contribution on the live show. “

The Big Night In is broadcast live on Thursday at 7 p.m. on BBC One.
