The Keith and Paddy Picture Show is back tonight on ITV with Keith and Paddy's version of Star Wars' Return of the Jedi.

The Keith and Paddy Picture Show is an affectionate and humorous tribute to some of Keith and Paddy’s favourite movies of all time. Each week they will attempt to recreate an iconic film, with the help of an all-star celebrity cast.

Each half hour episode will be a mix of high-end film parodies and behind-the-scenes mock-doc footage following the boys as they endeavour to bring their recreations to life. What could possibly go wrong…?

This week showcases their version of Return of the Jedi, featuring Michelle Keegan, Phillip Schofield and Ant and Dec.

The cast features Michelle Keegan as Princess Leia, comedy duo Ant and Dec as Ewoks, This Morning host Phillip Schofield will play Yoda, David Dickinson as The Emperor and Jeremy Kyle will appear as himself.

Michelle Keegan said: “I’m excited to be part of this new show with Keith and Paddy and thrilled to be taking on the iconic role of Princess Leia, a strong, female heroine and all round Star Wars legend. I had so much fun and we had such a laugh filming that I can’t wait for everyone to see the final result.”

Keith Lemon added: “I'm so super excited to be working with one of my best pals Paddy McGuinness.

"Paddy and I spoke about doing this years ago, and the dream is finally becoming a reality."

Paddy McGuinness continued: “Keith and I have been mates for a long time. We’re both self-confessed movie nuts so paying tribute to some of the most iconic movies scenes of all time is going to be a lot of fun!

"I’ve told him he’ll have to play most of the female roles though – he's got long hair and it'll save us a few quid on wigs!”
