The BBC confirms: "Dear NHS Superstars will see some of the country's favourite faces celebrate and pay tribute to the amazing healthcare professionals working in the NHS - from porters to surgeons and from cleaners to physiotherapists.
"From the heartfelt to the hilarious, each celebrity will share stories of personal interactions they've had throughout the years with NHS workers. The stars will speak candidly as they show their admiration, respect and thanks to those incredible doctors, nurses, midwives and other healthcare workers they and their loved ones have encountered in their lives."
Kay told his stories of working as a junior doctor in This Is Going To Hurt: Secret Diaries Of A Junior Doctor, his best-selling book first published in 2017. He's now set to publish Dear NHS: 100 Stories To Say Thank You this July, which the BBC confirms has also inspired this hour-long TV special.
Commissioner Kate Phillips says: "I am delighted to bring this show to the viewers and hear these amazing stories."
Adam Kay comments: "I'm thrilled to be (the least famous) part of Dear NHS Superstars. It's a joyous celebration of our greatest achievement as a nation, a huge and heartfelt thank you to the 1.5 million people we all owe our lives to, and a harrowing demonstration of what closing hairdressers for three months does to the hair of celebrities."
Lynn Sutcliffe from production company Mighty Scotland adds: "It has been a privilege to bring together these remarkable stories, especially at a time when NHS workers are so cherished by the whole nation. We hope people will find this programme as moving and inspiring to watch as it has been for us to make."
Dear NHS Superstars will be shown soon. An exact transmission date will be announced in due course.
