ACTOR Kathy Burke has praised two festival goers who dressed up and danced like comedy characters Kevin and Perry.

The comedian, writer, producer and director said the pair had put on such a convincing act as the film and TV sketch duo, created by her and Harry Enfield, that she almost thought it was her.

The Northern Echo's photographer Sarah Caldecott caught the pair on stage alongside old school DJing legend Alex P on Sunday afternoon.

And a video of them dancing in the crowd has gone viral on social media.


Commenting on Twitter today, Kathy Burke said: “If I wasn’t so much older and wider I’d swear this was me! Lovely stuff.”
