Vic Reeves reveals plans for new film about disco championships

The comic will star as a flare-wearing mover and shaker in the upcoming flick, which chronicles the 1979 finals of the televised dance off

Those who remember the 1979 Disco Dancin’ Championships will be thrilled to learn Vic Reeves has written a film about them.

The comic, who will star as a flare-wearing groover in the flick, says: “I could have been a champion myself.

“And I will be in this film.”

The 59-year-old’s wife, Nancy Sorrell, will play a rival dance team member.

And Vic’s co-writer, ex-Emmerdale actor Tony Pitts, will also feature in Disco Pier, produced by Studio Pow. Filming starts next year.

Meanwhile, Vic spent three months making 200 works of art for an exhibition.

They include surrealist objects, a depiction of the Royal Family “as hillbillies” and Rod Stewart doodles.

Speaking at the event, Vic said of his technique: “I drew Rod when I was very p***ed.”

Vic’s art is on show and available to buy at London’s Grosvenor Gallery.
