Latest sales figures also confirm that the Bolton comedian has now sold over 10 million DVDs since he started his career. He says: "It's unbelievable to have sold so many DVDs. Funnily enough I've not got any of my own as my family take them all."

Peter Kay is now recognised as the biggest selling UK comedian of all time. He currently holds the records for the biggest selling live stand-up DVD (Live At The Bolton Albert Hall), best-selling autobiography (The Sound Of Laughter) and his tour this year saw him become the first comedian to play 15 sold out nights at the O2 Arena in London and a record-breaking 40 nights at the Manchester Arena, with a combined audience total of over 1.2 million.

The success comes despite the fact some reviewers have called the new show lazily written, and criticised the comedian for utilising old pub gags which are not his own.
