Peter Kay fans think he looks “unrecognisable” after the comedian appeared in a video with musician Bryan Edery.

The musician posted the video captured backstage after one of Peter’s gigs and people cannot believe how different the comedian looks.

In the clip, shared on Instagram and taken at London’s O2 Arena, Peter is wearing a black tracksuit and jokes he is off to eat “two lamb bhunas” after the show.

Bryan captions to post: “I was fortunate enough to be invited by my good friends to see Peter Kay’s amazing show at the O2.

“And then very lucky to meet the man himself backstage. Go and see Peter’s show, it’s incredible.”

Fans of the comedian took to the comments to share their surprise at how different he looked, with one person writing: “He looks much healthier than he’s ever looked.”

Another added: “He looks as fit as a fiddle and very healthy.”

While a third said: “I wouldn’t have recognised him.”

In November last year, Peter announced that he would be returning to comedy with his first stand-up tour in 12 years.

Speaking in a statement at the time, he said: “It’s good to get back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now”

“And with the cost of living at an all-time high, ticket prices are starting from £35. The same price they were on my previous tour in 2010”.

Kay also announced that, alongside the nationwide arena tour, he would be taking on a monthly residency at the O2 starting in December 2022.

The comedian will perform one gig a month at the venue from Friday 16th December 2022, until Saturday 18th November 2023.
