Peter Kay is on Parkinson: The Final Chapter tonight, ostensibly to provide an interesting and entertaining guest for all the ladies and gentleman watching. But really, because he's got a cynical cash-in DVD with not actual new footage of him on sale.

We've tried looking at Paddy Power's excellent 'novelty bets' page, in the hope of finding odds on how he's going to sneak in the fact that he's got a cash-in DVD on sale, but left disappointed. So, we're putting on a trilby, standing next to a chalkboard, and making lots of incomprehensible hand signals, as we pretend to be BOOKIES FOR A DAY.

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING WILL PETER KAY DO FIRST ON TONIGHT'S PARKINSON INTERVIEW?

Try to make out that the DVD is his way of 'giving something back' to the 'Great British Public' who have 'made him what he is today'. i.e. Rich Evens
Claim that lots of people have asked him about bringing out a cynical cash-in with which to confuse elderly present-buyers, and he has finally relented 2/1
Indulge in a bit of 'wacky' wandering away from the main set to chat to an audience member/band member/cameraman, like what Lenny Henry used to do 6/5
Walk onto the set carrying a special Christmas present for Parky, which is a copy of his DVD 4/1
Not mention his DVD at all, because his PR people have noted that this exercise would be best served by merely 'heightening the Peter Kay brand' in front of a large audience 2/1
Actively speaks out about Stand Up UKay, because it's a horrendously cynical money-making exercise, and was put out without his consent. And that they must have tricked him into that photo session for the front cover of it 33/1
Waves hello to Alison Mitchell, who is sitting in the crowd. 8/1
