Peter Kay is returning to the stage for first time in three years to help terminally ill woman with charity shows

PETER Kay is returning to the stage for the first time in three years.

The comedian, 48, will be performing two charity shows next month to raise money for Laura Nuttall, who has been battling terminal brain cancer for three years.

He was last seen on stage during a surprise appearance at a Car Share screening in 2018.

The news was announced on his Twitter today, it read:  "Peter Kay will be performing two very special live Q&A’s in aid of Laura Nuttall at Manchester O2 Apollo on 7th Aug 21. Tickets go on sale on this Friday (30th July) at 9am"

Brave Laura Nuttall is hoping to raise £80,000 for treatment which is not available on the NHS.

In 2017, Peter announced he was returning to the stage with a huge tour of the UK the following year.

He was booked to perform more than 100 dates in his Have Gags, Will Travel tour.

But in December that year, Peter announced it would not be going ahead.

Despite taking a back seat from showbiz, he was still on TV in May 2018 when the final episode of his award-winning sitcom Car Share aired.

It had already been filmed when Peter quit all further work projects.

The funnyman has rarely been seen in public since.

Months later he fell victim to a cruel hoax on Twitter as trolls claimed he had died.

Last year he made a brief return to TV to present an updated version of (Is This The Way To) Amarillo from his back garden.
