British funnyman Matt Lucas has offered up his directing skills for singing duo The Proclaimers' new video.
The I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) hitmakers - twins Charlie and Craig Reid - have been friends with the Little Britain star for years, and were happy for Lucas to oversee the promo for new single Spinning Around In The Air.
But the singers are worried because Lucas - famed for his outlandish characters - wants them to dress up as women for the shoot.
Lucas tells Scotland's Sunday Mail, "I've been a massive fan of the Proclaimers since I was a kid. I got to know them years ago...
"They asked me to be in the video and I offered my services as a director. I've written this idea of a Golden Wedding party with Craig and Charlie playing these two old women who make a very heady punch.
"Basically it ends with all these pensioners getting arrested because they are completely off their heads. I think they are a bit nervous about getting dressed up but I thought if I am working with the Proclaimers, I will have to put them in drag."
