There is sure to be a scramble for tickets to see Peter Kay's live return.
The comedian has announced his first tour in 12 years, including two dates at the Utilita Arena, Newcastle, which are almost certain to sell out.
Phoenix Nights creator and star Peter's comeback was announced during an advert break on ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here. He has since added additional dates to his tour.

In it, Peter said: “It’s good to get back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy, and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now."
Such is demand that the 49-year-old's website crashed after the tour was announced.
The Car Share star cancelled plans for a tour in 2018 due to “unforeseen family circumstances”.
There is not long to go until the tour begins. Peter's first dates are in Manchester in December 2022. He plays Newcastle in March 2023.
