I read an article a couple of months ago about Peter Kay bringing out a new series for Channel 4 in October. Its not Phoenix Nights, but more of a take on society like 'That Peter Kay Thing' was.

Has anybody heard anything about this new series, and when it is due on air?

No but I love him and hope it's true.

I read something about that too, don't know the exact details though. Hope he's still as good as he used to be.

so wish he would do another tour

It's called:

Britain’s Got The Pop Factor and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice

A talent-show spoof, Peter Kay plays a transsexual singer, alongside Pete Waterman, four black dwarfs (Men Two Boyz) and a farting elderly lady.

I've come back on this thread because I saw a very fleeting advert for the new show Peter Kay is in. Thanks for that Bluesky cause the advert was so short I did not know what the show was about. Looking forward to it now grin I don't suppose you know when it is on do you? wink

no, it was just in the paper as an Autumn Highlight! No dates yet.

The ads for this on channel 4 are well strange. Just Peter Kay dressed as a woman with a ginger wig on! Weird!

Looking forward to this. Also excited about 'Sunshine' next Tuesday. Caroline Aherne makes an appearance!

Oohh, what's ´Sunshine´, never heard of it?

Mrs Mills - It is a 3 part drama with Steve Coogan, who plays a gambling addict. Written by Craig Cash (Dave in Royale Family) and Caroline Aherne is making a mini appearance.

ISnt the girl with the light brown hair in the wheelchair the same actress who played Holy Mary's daughter Mary in Phoenix Nights?

PMSL at this so far - loving R Wayne's story 'not being sad enough'!

mewerewolvesarehowling Sun 12-Oct-08 20:26:34

I think you're right about Holy Mary's daughter, and the one with the dark hair is Potter's girlfriend from the social services who was investigating him....

It's brilliant in an excrutiating, watching through my fingers kind of way - but PK has observed everything brilliantly. Pete Waterman's doing a fine job.

Hulababy Sun 12-Oct-08 20:37:39
