Talking Comic Peter Kay's Geraldine duets with rocker Macca at Stella McCartney's Christmas

Check out the link and look at the photos. I love the boots Stella is wearing....but is it just me or is she looking waaaaaaay too skinny?!?!?????

Nancy looks gorgeous in the pics too.

Comic Peter Kay's Geraldine duets with rocker Macca at Stella McCartney's Christmas light switch-on

A reality television star managed to do the unthinkable - steal the limelight from one of the most famous musicians in the world.
Comic Peter Kay's reality television star character Geraldine was the star of the show as Macca's daughter, Stella McCartney switched on the Christmas lights at her Mayfair store.

Christmas rockers: Comic Peter Kay and Sir Paul McCartney team up for a medley at the switching on of the lights at Stella McCartney's Mayfair store

Beatles legend Sir Paul, 66, and Peter, 35 got together to switch on the shop’s Christmas lights.
Dressed in full drag regalia, the comic cracked jokes onstage before being joined by the famous Beatle onstage albeit a little late.

The singalong went on for half an hour as Sir Paul had arrived late, and guests were freezing after being kept waiting while Sir Paul was stuck in traffic.
But trouper Kay kept the crowd amused, even jumping into the assembled paps at one point.

Dynamic duo: Sir Paul kept everyone waiting after getting stuck in traffic but stayed longer to entertain the crowd

The pair burst into song, singing Shakin' Stevens Merry Christmas Everyone at Macca’s daughter Stella’s store in Mayfair, central London.
The pair were reunited after McCartney, who recently spoke out against reality television shows, was a guest on the comedian's spoof show Britain's Got Pop, infront of an audience which included Marie Helvin, Lulu and Kate Moss.

McCartney arrived with a glamorous looking Nancy Shevell, who wore a silky minidress and knee high boots.

Recently the Beatle broke his silence about his relationship with the American businesswoman.
'I just like being in love,' he told the Sunday Times.
Macca's American girlfriend Nancy Shevell attended the bash
Still swinging: Scottish diva Lulu and former model Marie Helvin joined old pal McCartney

Not so silent night: Stella McCartney, Lulu and Kate Moss watch Macca and Peter Kay ham it up onstage

And Mrs Shevell – an American businesswoman who's amicably separated from her husband – says she isn't stressed by his mega-fame.

'I'm a cancer survivor, I run a trucking company and I've got a 16-year-old to raise. That's stress.'

Meanwhile Sir Paul made his stance on reality television clear, as he likened it to a car crash, but admitted he watched it.
The ex-Beatle claimed shows like the X Factor did not encourage musical creativity.
Sir Paul, 66, said: "I think there is too much of it. You can't turn on the telly without somebody being judged by four people, whether they are on ice, or on the stage or in the jungle.
"I'm not very keen on it.
He likes her yeah: Macca admitted recently he just likes being in love
"I watch it like everybody. It's compulsive viewing but so is a traffic accident. It doesn't encourage creativity.
"I don't think you are going to get a Bob Dylan emerging from those shows, but then not everyone goes on those shows.
"I think it's just a phase we are going through."
The legendary songwriter's latest album, The Fireman - a collaboration with producer Youth (aka Martin Glover) is released today.

The musician also expressed his happiness that Barack Obama won the US presidential election.
"I was so pleased that he won that it occurred to me that if I ever got asked I could sing Michelle to his wife," he said.

Paul appears to be at home with comedians/comics. In late 1963, the Beatles, dressed in campy boaters sang the equally campy song, "Moonlight Bay," with a then-famous English comedy duo. One member donned a Beatle wig and sang the catch phrases of the day, "Twist & Shout," "Yeah, yeah, yeah," and "I Like It," not taking into consideration that last one was not a Beatle classic.

Still, it was cute, campy and very funny footage and the boys appeared to be having a wonderful time.
