WHO will take part in the Great Yorkshire Fringe's re-enactment of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch on Yorkshire Day in York?

Festival publicist Kevin Wilson has confirmed that the original co-writer, Tim Brooke-Taylor, will definitely be among the quartet on Saturday afternoon, and so too will celebrated son of York Mark Addy.

Both are participating in the festival's Great Yorkshire Fringe Yorkshire Day Podcasts that day in the White Rose Rotunda, when Brooke-Taylor, The Goodies' star and BBC Radio 4 regular panellist, will be in conversation with Robert Ross at 2.30pm and Addy, from The Fully Monty, A Knight's Tale and Hercules, will follow suit at 4.15pm.

Brooke-Taylor's podcast event will include a screening of The Four Yorkshireman from the At Last The 1948 Show, written and performed in 1967 with his co-stars, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman.

This will be followed by the Yorkshire Day live re-mix, but who will be the "very special guest stars" accompanying Tim and Mark? Rumour has it that York Theatre Royal pantomime stooge Martin Barrass will be one of them, but won't he be busy playing station master Albert Perks in the 2pm matinee of The Railway Children in the National Railway Museum's Signal Box Theatre that afternoon?
