A member of the audience said: ‘People near the front started shouting for an ambulance.
‘Peter asked if they were being serious, then he asked for the big lights to go on and stewards ran over to see what was going on.
‘Peter came back on and continued the show but said ‘three went down then’ and he said he hoped ”they were OK”.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Peter Kay for more information on what happened on the night.
It comes after Peter revealed that he is set to release a brand new memoir this September.
The comedian has written about his ‘obsession for TV and working in it’ in the new book, which is already available for pre-order.
Named ‘Introducing… T.V. Big Adventures on the Small Screen’, the memoir will take a trip down memory lane as Peter recalls the last 25 years in showbiz.
It is his first memoir in 14 years, after previously releasing ‘Saturday Night Peter Kay’ – an autobiography which picked up from where his 2006 book The Sound of Laughter left off.
