Boston deputy council leader channels George Michael in Wham Last Christmas charity video

This story is over

Boston Borough Council deputy leader Aaron Spencer is bringing music to people’s ears once again this Christmas by performing a cover of Wham’s festive hit Last Christmas for charity.

Alongside his friend Jack Cunnington, Aaron is aiming to raise money for the British Heart Foundation through the tongue-in-cheek video which you can watch below.

In the video, the duo take a trip to Derbyshire to record their version of the 1986 hit, aping the pseudo home-filmed style of the original Wham video in which George Michael, Andrew Ridgeley and friends enjoy a Christmas skiing holiday.

Aaron and his band Hydrobats covered Slade’s Merry Christmas Everyone three years ago in memory of the councillor’s grandfather, who died from a heart condition around Christmas 2013.

“We’ve done it all tongue-in cheek, taking the mickey out of ourselves and we’ve made ourselves look absolute idiots but we enjoyed making it,” said Aaron.
