Keith Lemon goes Back to the Future!
Keith Lemon will host a one off ITV2 special celebrating 30 years of the iconic film
30 years after Marty McFly stepped into the time travelling DeLorean, Back to the Future’s biggest fan, Keith Lemon, is creating his very own celebratory one off special, Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute, for ITV2.
With the help of some of his celebrity friends the 90 minute episode 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. Keith 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.
Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute will air Autumn 2015 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the film and the day Marty McFly travelled to in the future for the second film.
Keith Lemon 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!”
