The opera house event was held to raise money for The Lily Foundation, which treats children with mitochondrial disease. Kay was due to start his first tour in eight years in Birmingham this month. It had 112 dates and was scheduled to run into 2019.He currently holds the record for the biggest-selling comedy tour of all time after playing to 1.2 million people in 2010 and 2011.The second series of Car Share ended with Kayleigh declaring her love for John. When he refused to say how he felt, she walked out of his car - and his life. Car Share won two Bafta TV Awards in 2016, for best scripted comedy and best male performance in a comedy programme.
