Peter Kay has been taking on a new Comic Relief challenge

Peter Kay is swapping stand-up for sit down - by undertaking a Comic Relief challenge from the comfort of his sofa.

The funnyman has been travelling in his seat from Belfast and is to arrive in London during the Red Nose Day broadcast being screened by BBC One and BBC Two on Friday evening.

He has also recorded a new version of the video to the James hit single Sit Down, with the group's lead singer Tim Booth. It follows a previous Comic Relief promo he recorded for Tony Christie's Is This The Way To Amarillo.

A spokeswoman for the charity joked: "Having undertaken a rigorous training regime to prepare for the challenge, Peter will not only have to endure the physical strain put on his body, but be mentally psyched up to withstand days of sitting down for the Comic Relief sketch."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
