 SINGER BARBARA Dickson loves comedian Peter Kay but claims she has never seen his spoof of her classic duet with Elaine Paige - I Know Him So Well.
The respected vocalist was at the Scottish Variety Awards in Glasgow's Crowne Plaza when the conversation turned towards the comedy take off of the hit Chess song which saw Peter play her role opposite Susan Boyle's Elaine Paige.
Barbara said: "I'm a great fan of Peter but I haven't seen the sketch. The song is a classic but I never sing it now - because it needs a duet."
Barbara joined band Prides, River City's Jordan Young and upcoming comedian Kate Dillon amongst the winners at the annual Scots showbiz ceremony.
The glitzy event was hosted by River City's Leah MacRae, STV's David Farrell,and talents including STVs Laura Boyd, Gerry Cassidy, musicians Fatherson, and star stylists Taylor and Anne Ferguson were in attendance.
Performances came from the UK Theatre School who paid tribute to David Bowie and mind reader Colin Cloud who baffled everyone with his psychic powers. Prides and Barbara also showcased their winning sounds and Gun frontman Dante Gizzi showed off his dance moves till the wee small hours.
Guests tucked into a three course dinner of chicken liver pate, filet of beef and cheesecake and funds were raised for DEBRA, The STV Appeal and The Second Chance Project on the night.
