Harry Hill has teamed up with Sinitta and the Hairy Bikers to record a spoof version of 'Take On Me' for Children in Need.
The 49-year-old comedian joined forces with the 'So Macho' hitmaker and Dave Myers and Simon 'Si' King to create a comical video remake of Norwegian pop band A-ha's hit 1980s song, and in the clip the former 'TV Burp' star is seen squabbling with the TV chefs, who play motorbike thugs, over a big sausage.
Harry, who wrote the script for the sketch, said: "Pudsey called me and told me his favourite 80s pop video was A-ha's 'Take On Me'.
"Suddenly an idea popped into my head - let's recreate it. Who better to get involved than 80s superstar Sinitta, and the Hairy Bikers?
"We've changed the plot only slightly to bring it bang up to date - it now involves a fight over a giant sausage. If that's not entertainment I don't know what is - and to help raise money for BBC Children in Need. Sorted."
Sinitta portrays the love interest in the mock video, a comical take on the 1985 original, and admitted she is keen to work with Harry again.
She added: "I am thrilled and honoured to be able to support Children In Need with the barmiest gentleman in comedy, Mr. Harry Hill.
"His crazy artistic madness is just my thing and I am dying to work with him again."
