Peter Kay returns to spotlight in coronavirus pandemic after two-year break from TV

Comedian Peter Kay, 46, will join a host of famous faces for the charity night titled The Big Night In, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The three-hour event will include amazing giveaways, surprises and live music performances from the artists’ homes.

The event will celebrate the acts of kindness and community support during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Chef Lenny Henry announced the news on The One Show this evening.

He told hosts Alex Scott and Alex Jones that he and Peter are amongst the famous faces who have signed up to the show.

Lenny said the show is to “raise spirits and raise money and give away some special prizes in this terrible crisis”.

A BBC source also told The Mirror: “We are delighted to get Peter involved as we know how many millions of fans he has.

“Peter is always keen to help when charities are involved and we can’t wait to see what he is lining up for the show.

“Fans will love seeing him back on TV.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, said: “BBC One will bring the nation together for this special one off live charity event.

“I would like to thank both BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief for joining forces in these unprecedented times to provide their support to local charities, projects and programmes across the whole UK; and to all of the stars taking part in this unmissable night of entertainment when the country needs it most.”

The much loved comedian was last seen on screens in the comedy Car Share in May 2018.

Peter was scheduled to return to the spotlight with his new Dance For Life tour to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
