Peter Kay is to return to stand-up comedy with his first live tour in eight years.

The Bafta award-winning writer and actor, who won critical acclaim for his TV series Car Share, will be back on stage for the first time since his record-breaking tour in 2010.

He will play 26 dates across 2018 and 2019, with two nights in Glasgow.

He said: “I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share, but I miss doing stand-up.

“As terrifying as it is, when it works there’s nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96.

“I can’t wait to get back up on stage.”
