Peter Kay makes TV comeback after showbiz absence as Comedy Shuffle starts tonight

PETER Kay returns to our TV screens tonight for the first time in five months.

The third series of the comic's BBC series Comedy Shuffle will air at 9pm on BBC One.

The show is a compilation of some of 45-year-old Peter's funniest sketches, with the star's 20-year career establishing him as one of the British comedy circuit's most-loved faces.

The series includes footage from his stand-up routines as well as his popular TV shows – including Car Share and Phoenix Nights.

Never-before-seen outtakes and deleted scenes will also be shown, in addition to celebrity guest appearances.

It is not yet known which guests will be joining Peter for the new series of his show, but the likes of Sir Trevor McDonald, Sir Michael Parkinson, and Sir Elton John have featured in the past.

Comedy Shuffle comes less than one year after Peter cancelled his mammoth UK tour.

After eight years away from the stage, last year the star revealed that he was returning with a live tour.

However, on December 13, 2017, he announced that all of the dates had been cancelled.

In a statement on Twitter, Peter wrote: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.

"This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments.

"I’ve always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media. I hope that the media and public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I’m very sorry."
