Peter Kay makes TV comeback in Car Share special

By Bethany Minelle, News Reporter
Peter Kay has returned to our screens in a special improvised edition of the BAFTA-winning comedy Car Share.
The show is his first TV appearance since cancelling his highly anticipated live tour in December due to "unforeseen family circumstances".
At the time, the 44-year-old comic said his "family must always come first" and that the decision to cancel his first live tour in eight years was "not taken lightly".

Car Share tells the story of a supermarket assistant manager John Redmond (Kay) and promo rep Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson) who share a lift to work.Kay said he wanted to try the unscripted episode because it is "something original" and he "couldn't think of any other narrative comedies that have ever made a fully improvised episode".He added: "As Sian and myself often ad-lib when filming, we thought we'd give it a go for an entire episode."The second series of Car Share ended on an emotional cliff-hanger, with Kay's character rejecting the advances of his colleague Kayleigh.
