Due to overwhelming demand (it had to happen really didn't it?) Peter Kay has extended his Tour That Doesn't Tour tour to 20 dates in Manchester.

Originally announcing only four dates for his upcoming tour last week, his website reportedly crashed over the weekend under the pressure of thousands of fans trying to snap up tickets. 

The BBC writes when Kay explained his decision to restrict the dates to Manchester, "I don't want to be away from home, this is a happy compromise. The secret to life is balance, spending time with your family and friends, with a bit of work."

It’s all go for Peter Kay at the moment as it seems Mr Kay will be hosting next year's Brit Awards too!

A ‘source’ has told The Sun that the comedian has been in talks “for weeks about the ceremony”.

Next year’s Brits will be the 30th anniversary of the awards and “Peter was the clear first choice.”

“There’s no-one with a better pedigree or a better style of delivery which appeals to all ages.”

We’re sure he’ll do a much better job that the cringe-fest that was Frank Skinner’s attempt in 2002…

Kay is also lined up to host this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
