Peter Kay will make a rare showbiz appearance next month after more than three years out of the spotlight.
It will be the 47-year-old’s first major appearance after a raft of performance cancellations in December 2017.
He said that the decision was due to “unforeseen family circumstances” at the time.
The popular comedian was last seen on television for a brief appearance on BBC’s Big Night in during April this year.
He has been enjoying a quiet life with wife Susan Gargan and hasn’t felt the need to yet return to the showbiz spotlight.
Cat and husband Patrick, along with their two sons, Milo, four, and James, two, returned to the UK earlier this year after years of living out in Los Angeles.
The former SM:TV star is in “advance talks” for a lucrative come back on UK telly in 2021.
She is working hard to secure her very own primetime game show but is looking forward to her radio return in January.
Speaking about making her Radio 2 debut, Cat said: “We’re a radio house, so Radio 2 is constantly on in the kitchen, all day, every day, even when we were in LA.
“Although, due to the time difference, the line-up was slightly different.
“We loved having a Dance Devotion With Ana Matronic dinner on a Friday night, listening to Liza Tarbuck post-Farmers Market on a Saturday and waking up to Sounds Of The 70s on a Sunday.
“We don’t miss a moment of music, chat and news, but now we are based here, we begin our day in sync with Zoe instead of starting with Steve!”
