Let It Shine guest judge Peter Kay joins Gary Barlow dressed as Honey G

Peter Kay joined Let It Shine on the final tonight in place of Robbie Williams... dressed as Honey G.

The comic joined the panel this evening as the last guest judge of the series, a last minute replacement for Robbie.


Peter took to the stage dressed as X Factor's Honey G, walking out to the crowd and cameras in a gold jumpsuit, cap and shades.

Asked how he'd be as a judge, Peter - aka 'Honey P' - quipped to hosts Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc: "Inadequate, very inadequate but I'm standing in for Robbie, he's hurt his back and we wish a very quick recovery."

As previously announced, Robbie Williams will still reunite with Take That for a special performance for the Let It Shine live final this evening.

As well as confessing to being Take That’s number one fan, Peter is a one of Britain’s best-loved comedians, a Bafta-winning actor and has released two huge number one singles for charity.

He has also starred in the award-winning musical The Producers in Manchester and Cardiff. As the man with the most-successful comedy tour of all time in the UK, Peter is ideally placed to pass on advice to the finalists on how to win over live audiences.

The final of Let It Shine airs this evening at 6.45pm on BBC One and viewers’ votes alone will decide who wins.


Three groups remain in the competition: Nightfall, Five To Five and Drive.

They'll each be performing two songs, a musical theatre number and a pop classic in a bid to be crowned champion.
