The stand-up king is back! Peter Kay has finally announced details of his next tour, and it's a big one.

He last toured back in 2010, and that jaunt still ranks as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, with Peter performing to over 1.2 million people.

Kicking off in April 2018, the tour will visit all major UK and Ireland arenas through into 2019.

"I really miss it," he said. "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."

Tickets will go on sale this Sunday (November 19) at 10am.
