Peter Kay has delighted his fans by making a rare public appearance at The Lowry theatre.
The comedian, who has remained out of the spotlight over the past few years, visited Bob Harris and Danny Baker at their show in Salford on Sunday night.
Harris posted the moment on Instagram, captioning the image: “Lads. Pre-show.”
The post has accumulated over a thousand likes and many fans of the Bolton funnyman have said how it’s ‘lovely’ to see Kay looking so ‘well’.
One person commented: “Lovely to see you Bob and Danny but Peter, I have a tear in my eye. It is beyond wonderful to see you!”
Another pitched in, adding: “Great to see you Peter Kay looking so well.”
“Terrific picture,” a third said. “So great to see everyone, especially Peter – such a genuine music lover.”
He claimed the idea to write another book came as he recorded the audio version to ‘The Sound of Laughter’.
According to Sky News, he explained: “Within the first few chapters of recording, I was inspired to start to write a third book.
“I had the idea about 10 years ago. All about working in TV. From when I started doing bit parts in Coronation Street right up to Car Share.
“It’s been a real joy recalling the memories. There’s over 20 years of stories about filming series like Phoenix Nights and Max & Paddy’s Road To Nowhere.”
The 48-year-old currently holds the record for the biggest selling British hardback autobiography of all time. Apparently, it’s sold over two million copies worldwide.
