Keith Lemon is to celebrate Back To The Future’s 30th Anniversary with his own one-off 90 minute special, Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute on ITV2.
30 years after Marty McFly stepped into the time travelling DeLorean, Back to the Future’s biggest fan, Keith Lemon along with the help of some of his celebrity friends will see Keith remake some of his favourite Back to the Future scenes in his own inimitable style.
Paddy McGuiness will be playing Biff, Gino D’Acampo takes on the role of Doc and McBusted will be performing the film’s iconic song, Johnny B. Goode.
The episode will also see Back to the Future obsessive Keith head off on a transatlantic pilgrimage to visit the film’s iconic locations and meet some of the original cast and crew including co-creator, Bob Gale. And… if that wasn’t enough, he will hang out with some of the film’s biggest fans, speak to boffins studying real time travel and will even have a go on a real life, working hover board.
Speaking about the new show, Keith says…
“Never did I fink 30 years ago I’d be on telly doing a ‘docu-com’ about 30 years of Back t’ future. It’s well documented that I’m a massive BTTF fan but I’m not well documented for mecking documentaries. I’m very excited. I feel like a geeky 40 year old virgin, accept I’m not 40 and I’ve had loads of sex. Let’s get that flux capacitor fluxing!”
ITV’s Commissioning Editor, Comedy Entertainment, Claire Zolkwer adds, “Keith is the most enthusiastic Back To The Future fan that I’ve ever met so with the 30th anniversary coming up, what better way for ITV2 to celebrate than with his very own ‘docu-com’.”
Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute will air Autumn 2015 on ITV2
