Peter Kay will embark on his first stand-up comedy tour in eight years next year.
It was announced last week that the Bolton comedian will perform a host of dates across the UK and Ireland throughout 2018 and early 2019, with tickets going on general sale on Sunday morning.
Ahead of tickets going on sale, the 44-year-old caused utter chaos on The Jonathan Ross Show, clambering over the set and inviting member from the audience to join fellow guests on the show in the green room.
His appearance on the show, which aired on Saturday night, saw Kay begin by climbing through railings in the set’s background and attempting to rearrange its ‘London-centric’ skyline.
Having eventually been coaxed to the sofa, Kay then revealed he had -unbeknown t0 Ross – offered a ‘meet-and-greet’ with the chat show host as a raffle prize at a Christmas fayre. Seconds later, he invited three members of the studio audience on stage, allowing them to sit on the sofa.
Winners Mary, Anne and Philip later went backstage to meet other guests on the show.
“I offered you as a raffle prize,” Kay had explained. “I was struggling, I basically offered you as a meet and greet.”
