David White acted out his best Peter Andre impression in Killingworth Lake on Saturday morning after making a promise all the way back in January.

A balmy Newcastle United supporter has celebrated the club's return to the Champions League by attempting to recreate the iconic Peter Andre music video for 'Mysterious Girl' in Killingworth Lake.

David White ran 2,5000 miles to fundraise for the West End Food Bank last year and ended up collecting even more funds as he fulfilled a crazy promise made in January.

Five months ago the thought of Champions League qualification was still just a dream for many Newcastle fans, including David, who didn't think he'd ever have to follow through when promising to re-create the music video should Newcastle qualify.

He said: "It was halfway through the season, around January time after the Arsenal game. I thought we would blow it [Champions League qualification], I'm too used to it with Newcastle.

"My family think it's a stupid idea but friends are all for it, encouraging it."

David admitted it took 'a few days' to realise what qualification meant for his promise after Newcastle secured Champions League football with a 0-0 draw against Leicester City at St James' Park.

He said: "I stayed out after the match and didn't get home and realise until the Tuesday night. I put it on Facebook, I had to go in and thought why don't I raise so much money for the Food Bank for it?

"The way they raise money and have it doubled by Jamie Reuben, it's a massive thing for Newcastle United at the minute. More and more people are relying on food banks."

David admitted he felt "a bit daft" as he arrived at Killingworth Lake on Saturday morning, the sun bringing out a crowd of passers-by wondering what was going on.

Responding to why he picked the Peter Andre track, David said: "Just the fact it's in water and Peter Andre's body is ridiculous compared to me!

"I watched the music video once or twice but I couldn't keep on my feet because the bottom of the lake was so soft. I thought I was going to fall over at one point!"
