Peter Kay sparked fears from his family over career decision before turning 50 | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV |

Peter revealed: “My mum rang on Sunday night after that advert went on and said, ‘how many nights you doing?’.”

Peter told Zoe how he felt after his mother shared her worries, quipping: “I thought, I’m 49 not nine… I can drive home.”

This will be Peter’s first live tour since 2010, when he performed to more than 1.2 million people and broke the Guinness World Record for the biggest-selling run ever.

Time Out reported that O2 and Virgin said the sale was “by far the highest demand we’ve ever seen for priority tickets in 15 years”, after it led to the O2 priority ticket website crashing.

Peter later told the BBC Radio 2 DJ that he couldn’t comprehend the reaction to his stage comeback adding: “I thought we should call this tour Peter Who? because I haven’t been (around) for five years. Being on the news … can you get your head around that?”

Peter’s appearance on stage may also be striking to long-time fans of the comic, as he was spotted sporting a much slimmer figure when his tour kicked off this year.

He was spotted in a photograph with musician Bryan Edery on his Instagram, which showed Peter sporting a slender frame.

The two were all smiles as the pianist dedicated a touching social media post to the star at his London O2 show: “I was fortunate enough to be invited by my good friends to see Peter Kay’s amazing show at the O2. And then very lucky to meet the man himself backstage.”

He added: “Go and see Peter’s show, it’s incredible. Secondly, thank you friends, you know who you are.”
