I have been a fan of Matt Lucas since his Shooting Stars days, my husband and I regularly burst into a chorus of the 'Thank You Baked Potato' song he used to sing on the show! He has actually released a version to raise funds for FeedNHS which reached the top spot in the UK Official Singles Downloads Chart in its first week of release!
The hilarious charity song has seen online duets between Matt and a host of stars such as Gary Barlow, Brian May, Rick Astley and Ronan Keating.
Now you can get your hands on a book to read alongside the song! Thank You Baked Potatois now a laugh-out-loud picture book, offering important guidance for all the family, plus plenty of self-isolation fun!
It's currently available at Amazon to pre-order for £4.39, get yours here*.
Matt Lucas said: "I am chuffed to bits that we are bringing out this book of the song – complete with Scott Coello’s brilliant illustrations – so
that children can help remember how to stay safe. I’m also thrilled
that all of the proceeds will go to FeedNHS, ensuring that we can
continue to deliver hot, nourishing food free of charge to our NHS
critical care staff on the front line."
FeedNHS is campaigning to raise as much money as possible for NHS Trusts to get hot, healthy meals to NHS teams on the front line.
This is a not-for-profit campaign set up by Matt Lucas, Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory and John Vincent from LEON, that sees the restaurant industry come together to provide meals at cost and deliver them to the hardworking NHS teams on critical care units.
The book will be released on 4th May 2020 but you can pre-order today.
