ABOUT 'SkidVid Gold' VIDEOS. Over the coming months I will occasionally be releasing a series of videos tagged 'SkidVid Gold'. These are all songs/videos that have been selected by myself, and have been a success commercially, or simply because they are some of my all-time favourites. I hope you like them too. [skirgsk]

Gareth Paul Gates [born July 12th 1984], is a singer hailing from Bradford, England. Gates was runner-up on the first series of Pop Idol in February 2002. Despite not winning the competition, he was soon signed up with record label BMG. Gates has sold just over three million music singles in the UK, including the second and sixth best selling singles in 2002 and the second best selling single in 2003 ['Spirit In The Sky'].
"The Kumars" was a TV show starring a fictional British Indian family, including Madhuri and Ashwin Kumar [played by Indira Joshi and Vincent Ebrahim], their thirty-something son Sanjeev [played by Sanjeev Bhaskar], and Sushila, Sanjeev's grandmother, normally referred to as Ummi [played by Meera Syal]. The family live in Wembley, London, England. The show's central premise is that Sanjeev's parents have supported his dream of being a TV presenter by having a TV studio built on what used to be their back garden.
The Kumars made a guest appearance on the 2003 Comic Relief single 'Spirit In The Sky' performed by Gareth Gates. They also starred in the video. It reached No.1 in the charts and sold more than 550,000 copies.
