Peter Kay returned to stage for the first time in three years over the weekend.

Peter Kay has teased the possibility of a one-off Car Share Christmas special this year, describing the show as his 'favourite' things he's done.

The 48-year-old comedian returned to the stage for the first time in three years over the weekend, where he was greeted with a standing ovation.

As reported by the Mirror, he was asked whether he would consider doing a festive edition of the show, to which he replied that he ‘might do’.

He added: "Of all the things I’ve ever done, that’s my favourite of all. I love being with Sian [Gibson] and we had a good laugh."

Peter also added that filming in a car in line with coronavirus restrictions would be ‘a lot of work’.

It was announced late last month that Peter Kay would return to the stage for three live Q&As to raise money for his friend Laura Nuttall, who has an aggressive type of brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme.

Laura, who was in the audience for the shows, told Metro.co.uk: "He’s such a nice person, he’s an absolute gentleman and he just wants to help everyone anyway he can.

"Honestly, anything you’ve heard about him doesn’t do him justice. He’s such a nice man and I feel so honoured he’s going to do this, his first performance in years, for me."
