Peter Kay responds to being in a music video with 'dirty s**thouse' Jimmy Savile

Peter Kay is back on the road after more than a decade, bringing his distinctive brand of comedy to the stage with his Better Late Than Never tour.

People have been flocking to see the 49-year-old's new show, and new dates keep getting added to the tour due to huge demand.

Among the topics touched upon in the show is disgraced DJ Jimmy Savile.

He appeared alongside Kay in the music video for '(Is This The Way To) Amarillo', which was re-released in 2005 for Comic Relief.

As part of his new show, Kay took to the stage to the jaunty song, before sharply shifting to the subject of the dead paedophile.

"Very popular at kids' parties," he told the crowd.

"Number one for seven weeks, biggest-selling song of that year and now thanks to Jimmy Savile it's on YouTube with a paedophile warning.


"Thanks for that Jimmy."

Looking down to the ground, he corrected: "Sorry, thanks for that Jimmy… dirty s***house.

"I can't believe that. He was in the video."


If you've not been able to get tickets for his new show yet, don't worry, it looks like he's going to be touring it for the rest of his life at this rate.

New dates keep being added, with thousands of fans joining seemingly endless queues, before leaving empty-handed, and trying again as more shows are announced.

Kay was moved to tears on the opening night of his first live comedy tour in 12 years - though you'd think taking to the stage will become pretty run of the mill fairly soon, as he has shows planned all the way up until 2025. So it seems he's most definitely making up for lost time.



Announcing extra shows on Sara Cox's BBC Radio 2 drivetime show on Thursday (8 December), he said: "First of all, I want to say thanks to everyone who's bought tickets to my tour and I really do appreciate it.

"And we've finally managed to book some more extra dates."

He added that reaction to news of his tour had been 'absolutely joyous' and described the first shows as 'brilliant'.

He said: "It's been amazing and people deserve a bit of joy."


He also reminded people that he had kept price in mind.

"Don't forget they start at 35 quid," he said. "I've done them cheap for the whole cost-of-living thing. So that's £35 at 2010's prices."
