Children In Need 2013: Harry Hill Recruits Sinitta, Hairy Bikers For Re-Enactment Of a-Ha's 'Take On Me' Video

When you're thinking of great musical pairings - Rogers and Astaire, Rogers and Parton, Rodgers and Hammerstein - there's one that might just slip your mind... Harry Hill and Sinitta.

That obviously won't be the case after this year's Children in Need, because Hill has teamed up with the songstress for a special version of a-Ha's classic 1985 music video for 'Take On Me'.

The high-collared comedian reveals:

"Pudsey called me and told me his favourite 80's 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 80's 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 it raises money for BBC Children in Need - sorted!"

Other celebs to appear in the video include the eclectic mix of... The Hairy Bikers, Dave Myers and Simon King, Sophie Raworth, Tom Ellis, Cheryl Fergison, Richard Madeley and Nick Hewer, Warwick Davies, Will Mellor and Amanda Lamb.

Get ready to take on that.

The full sketch will be shown live on the BBC Children in Need 2013 Appeal Night: Friday 15 November live from 1930 on BBC One.

Other celebrities taking part on the night include ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, seen in our pictures here in training for the 'Children in Need Strictly Come Dancing' special.

Meanwhile, here's a reminder of just how high the bar was set way back in 1985, and there WERE bikers...
