The Sun reports that the comedian, 48, has put together a new stage show that he will perform next year in a number of top venues.

The tour, which will take place at places like the London O2 Arena and Manchester AO Arena, will be the first time in 14 years that Peter has performed a live stage show.

A source told the publication: "He has lined up huge venues across the country including in Manchester, London and Birmingham and is hoping to announce it in September.

"Peter has not performed a live stand-up set on a big stage in well over a decade now but he could not be more ready to get back out there."

Back in 2017, Peter cancelled his upcoming 100-gig tour due to 'unforeseen family circumstances'.

Posting a statement to Twitter, he wrote: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances I deeply regret I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
