#Covid-19: Peter Kay to make first TV appearance in two years for charity show

Peter Kay will make his first TV appearance in two years this month.

The popular comedian will appear on BBC's The Big Night In, a charity event fundraising for Children In Need and Comic Relief.

His much-anticipated return is set to have his many fans tuning in particularly as it's been two years since his last TV appearance, with series Car Share in 2018.

The news was announced yesterday evening and it's thought that a number of other household names have signed up including Gary Barlow and Catherine Tate.

Sharing the news on The One Show last night, Lenny Henry explained that both charities are coming together for the first time and its organisers "want to cheer people up in this terrible crisis".

According to reports, the show will concentrate on acts of kindness that have been experienced in communities coming together since the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.

The live show will take place on Thursday, April 23 at 7pm and it's gearing up to be a great night.

Peter Kay was due to tour in May this year but on account of the coronavirus, the dates have now been postponed.

People have been advised to hold onto their Dance for Life tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced due course.

A statement on his website reads:

"Obviously this is disappointing news but well and truly justified given the circumstances. We'll get through this, together and then we'll all have a great big dance for life.

"Stay safe and look after yourselves and the people around you."
