Peter Kay will return to television screens across the country for the first time since the announcement of a hiatus three years ago. He will participate in the BBC show “The Big Night In” which will raise funds for Children in Need and Comic Relief. There he will join “Phoenix Nights” co-star Paddy McGuinness, to tickle the nation with an evening of entertainment during the coronavirus lockdown. The dry-humored duo have a long history together, having directed popular television shows, including “Max and Paddy’s Road To Nowhere.” Aside from that, they also grew up in Bolton and had at least one of the same teachers. Based on their frolicking on the screen, it would be fair to assume that the performing pair is the best of friends. But an unearthed interview may reveal that this is not entirely the case.
Although they share the same city in the North West of England as their country of origin, similar professional aspirations and a natural flair for comedy – the couple couldn’t be more different.
While Paddy seems happy to make the headlines and has made national headlines several times, Peter prefers a calm, more private life.
Peter’s determination to keep his family life hidden from the outside world has resulted in nothing about the knowledge of two of his three children with Susan Gargan – not even their names.
During the couple’s ramp-up, Paddy did what could be interpreted as an offbeat comment about his comedy companion at Metro in 2007.
Asked about his relationships with other comedians, he said that due to the fact that it was a “fairly serious game,” he often hangs out with people outside his industry.
Paddy said, “The comedians are sitting at home, dragging everyone.
“I wouldn’t go as far as” dog-eat-dog “but when you do something all the time, you don’t want to keep making jokes in your private life. “
But when the star was asked how often he sees Peter Kay, it looks like Paddy tried to dodge the question with a series of jokes.

In a 2012 Birmingham Mail interview, Spikey said there were a lot of arguments during their stay in the writers’ room and accused Peter of being a control freak.
Spikey went on to say that they “are always co-workers and never best friends.”
He said, “We used to argue over everything, like” What’s the funniest pie? “It’s chicken and mushrooms, of course. We could chat for an hour a little more.
“Then we went in separate directions and lost contact, even though we have been talking since.
“The last time I met him in a TV studio and we chatted. But it was a few years ago (2010). “
While the chemistry on the screen of Paddy McGuinness and Peter Kay seems authentic and seems to be that of a loving friendship, who knows what is hidden below.
Like the relationship with Mr. Spikey, the couple’s relationship could be transactional and only for commercial purposes and not for pleasure.
The pair will be brought together across the country tonight (April 23) for The Big Night In, which will air on BBC One and iPlayer between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.
As part of the preparations for the event, Peter encouraged the nation to recreate his famous clip “(Is This The Way To) Amarillo”.
Observations sent and then shared by the star showed that nurses, police, firefighters and the public were involved by walking on site or through different places.
The charity concert, led by Sir Lenny Henry, will feature comedies and concerts by some of the UK’s top talent.
They include: Gary Barlow, David Walliams, Catherine Tate, Romesh Ranganathan, Davina McCall, Claudia Winkleman, Matt Baker, Tess Daly and David Tennant.
