Peter Kay returns to the spotlight with rare appearance on Cat Deeley's radio show

January 2, 2021

FUNNY man Peter Kay delighted fans with a rare public appearance today as he joined Cat Deeley for her radio debut.

Cat, 44, was joined by Peter, 47, on BBC Radio 2 this morning after Graham Norton's recent departure for Virgin Radio.

It was Peter's first radio or television appearance in more than eight months.

And he was on good form, cracking jokes and mocking himself over his "embarrassing" backstage moment with a Mamma Mia! star.

He explained to listeners: “I went to watch Mamma Mia!, the stage version, and I loved it and I don’t want to ruin it, but she gets married at the end.

“They go off into the moonlight to, [the song] I Have A Dream.

“I got a bit emotional and anyway, I knew the stage manager and she said, ‘Come back’.

“So, I went back [stage] and the main girl she said, ‘Lovely to meet you’ and I said, ‘Congratulations!”

“And she said, ‘Why?’”

“I was mortified, I was so wrapped up in it, I said, ‘Congratulations on getting married!’

“It was so embarrassing. I nearly got her a gift card!”

They also reminisced over his hit show Britain's Got the Pop Factor… Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice.

Peter was last seen on telly when he recorded a special version of his Amarillo for BBC's Big Night In back in April.

He was the first guest on Cat's show, which the former SM:TV Live presenter has said she is "thrilled" to be doing.

The presenter's show is one of a number of programmes which will fill the slot vacated by Graham Norton, before his replacement Claudia Winkleman starts.

From next Saturday, Nicki Chapman will be sitting in for Norton before Winkleman takes over.
