He’s at it again! The popular Bolton comedian has been messing around on the set of Jonathan Ross and it’s hilarious!
The Jonathan Ross show, which airs tonight (18/11/17) at 9.40pm, is known for having the skyline of London behind the host, but Peter Kay decided to investigate.
In a preview of tonights show, Peter says he’s going for a ‘nosey around’ and leaves the orange sofa in the direction of the skyline.
As he heads towards the backdrop to the show’s set, Ross begins to wonder what is happening and he was right to do so!
Peter Kay then proceeds to climb through one of the hollow squares and leaves the studio.
Jonathan says: “Oh, you see that’s not meant to happen.” As he watches on in amazement at what he’s seeing.
He also says: “That’s a health and safety issue. You’re not allowed to do that!” but Kay wasn’t listening.
He started climbing up the set and re-arranging parts of the skyline, totally ignoring Jonathan Ross’s warnings.
It was another evening of madness as the 44 year old comic climbed up onto the presenters desk and invited members of the audience on set. (Scroll down for video)
Peter Kay revealed that he’d offered Jonathan Ross as a Christmas raffle prize recently and he said: “I basically offered you as a meet and greet. They’re here.”
He then called up Mary, Anne and Philip to the stage where they at on the sofa with him to meet Mr Ross.
After the meet and greet Peter walked the winners into the green room to meet with other guests of the show like Luke Evans, Sheridan Smith and Iain Stirling.
Fans of Peter Kay will no doubt be in stitches with the comedians latest antics.
It’s not the first time he’s pulled this stunt on Jonathan Ross’s show though.
Back in 2011, Kay was promoting his new book called “Peter Kay: The Book” and walked on stage dressed as a giant book!
As he sat on the sofa and settled in he gave Ross a copy of his book and also a picture of his face done in a cross stitch pattern.
Jonathan tried to ask some questions but Kay just kept sticking different moustaches on saying he was “Messing with the shows continuity”
Being inquisitive Peter decides to go for a look around and ends up behind the set, looking through a window where the interview continues.
The show then goes to a break and the interview continues with him sat on the sofa.
This latest appearance on the show is in conjunction with the announcement of his latest stand up tour which is called “Have Gags Will Travel”
The last time he toured was back in 2010 and it earned him a Guinness World Record for most ticket sales for a stand up comedy tour.
A 30 second video has appeared that shows him carrying a new carpet for his nan’s new house.
A man sat in a car is shouting at him asking when he’s going to be back on tour.

Talking of the tour he said: “I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share, but I miss doing stand-up.
“As terrifying as it is, when it works there’s nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96.
“I can’t wait to get back up on stage.” he said.
The tour starts next April and takes in 26 dates across 2018 and 2019. Shows are restricted to age 15 and over.
Fans are excited by his return:

He’s been in the headlines a bit lately though with his appearance on the new Warburtons advert “Pride and Breadjudice” which was made to commemorate the 141st anniversary of the bread makers.
The advert tells the story of how the company came about and he plays seed salesman Thomas Warburton. He wins the love of a young baking noblewoman called Ellen who is played by Emma Connell.
Kay is seen wearing Victorian clothing and a top hat, riding a horse, scything a field and dancing in a stately home. He calls it an “epic tale of passion, flour and a woman stood on a hill”.
“Ellen is overcome by Thomas’ intimate knowledge of seeds, and his fancy footwork,” he says.
Ellens father says she needs a more suitable husband but the two do some bonding over over “suggestive kneading” of bread by candlelight. Her father arrives though and tells them that “this seedy affair is over”
She tells her father that Thomas is “everything I knead” but Kay’s character is dragged off and it seems the relationship is over leaving Ellen to be married to someone called Barnaby.
Thomas is determined though and returns on a horse just in time to make a new proposal to Ellen which is to: Start a nationwide baking business together.
Ellen responds with: “That’d be absolutely banging,”
Another anniversary video shows Kay making increasingly bad pitches for Warburtons ads. He starts with a spoof Western film called ‘The Good, the Bread and the Ugly, a Netflix drama called ‘Game of Scones’ and a sitcom called ‘Fawlty Toasters’.
The ad has been described as “the greatest bakery story never told” and it celebrates 141 years of the Warburtons brand.
He makes references to his garlic bread jokes and also recalls the slogan from his John Smith’s ads, shouting ‘ave it!’ as he drop-kicks Barnaby’s top hat into the air..
This new ad is one of a long line of ad campaigns for Warbies which have included Sylvester Stallone’s epic ‘Deliverers’ ad, featuring music from the Rocky films, and a Muppets-themed advert with Kermit the Frog.
Seems like the great comedian is on the rise again, his tour starting next year will be one to look forward to we are sure.
