Bolton comedian Peter Kay has announced further dates to his UK tour due to phenomenal public demand.

Tickets went on sale this morning and quickly sold out.

He will now play further dates in Manchester and Liverpool in 2018 and 2019.

The Bolton star's last tour in 2010, which still officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, played to over 1.2 million people.
