Sir Paul has agreed to a cameo role in the comic’s new Channel 4 project, imaginatively entitled Britain’s Got The Pop Factor… And Possibly A New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly On Ice.
He has apparently filmed several scenes for the two-hour programme, due to transmit on Sunday, October 12, according to the Daily Mirror.
A show source said: “They met at Sir Paul’s recent Anfield gig and Peter (pictured) asked him if he could spare a day to do some filming. He loved the idea. He is a fan of Peter’s work. Getting Macca is a big coup.”
Other big names thought to be appearing in the show include rock band Kaiser Chiefs and TV presenter Cat Deeley.
And Pop Idol panelists Nicki Chapman, Pete Waterman and Neil Fox will appear as judges.
