Comedian Peter Kay appeared happy and healthy as he was spotted out in public for the first time in nine months.

The 45-year-old comedian was pictured wrapped up warm in a black coat, fleece and hat in his hometown of Bolton, Greater Manchester, last Thursday.

The sighting – published in in The Sun today – comes nearly a year after his last public appearance, at Blackpool Opera House during a charity showing of a Car Share episode on April 7, 2018.

Kay, who lives in a low-key manner with his wife Susan and their three children, cancelled his first live tour in eight years for ‘family reasons’ in December 2017.

The comedian’s surprise appearance in Blackpool last April is the only time he has been seen in public since the shock announcement about the 112-show tour.

Last November his Car Share co-star Sian Gibson, who plays Kayleigh, said the duo had been working a new script together with ‘something in the pipeline’.

Kay’s remarkable rise to stardom from working in a bingo hall and a factory making toilet rolls has seen him amass a fortune which now stands at £32million.

His 2010-11 tour secured its place in the Guinness World Records as the most successful of all time after he performed to more than 1.2million people.

Kay has made a point of putting his family first – a decision influenced by the early loss of his father Michael aged just 59, before his son had hit fame.

Speaking to the Sunday Post in June 2016, he said: ‘I still go to Tesco, I still do my big shop, I think you’ve got to. You can’t be agoraphobic, you’ve got to live your life.

‘I think you’d go insane if you didn’t. When you live a normal life and keep your ears pricked, you hear all sorts of funny things.’
