Peter Kay‘s “huge” earnings have been revealed just before his upcoming UK tour sold out in minutes.

A source reportedly told The Sun that Kay’s company accounts currently holds £22.6million, without taking into account ticket sales.

“The accounts just prove what a huge success Peter is,” the source began. “His royalties and merchandise still tick along every year, despite his recent inactivity.

“He’s also very savvy with his cash, as he’s made lots of wise investments.”

The website hosting the ticket sales for Kay’s tour crashed after the pre-sale opened earlier this month, with O2 saying it had been “by far the highest demand we’ve ever seen for Priority Tickets in 15 years”.

Talking to Sara Cox on BBC Radio 2 about the huge publicity the tour has received, Kay said: “I could not get over… I was lying in bed with [wife] Susan on Monday night because I had a show, a practice, and Huw Edwards was on the news with a picture of me behind him.

“He was doing the Queen’s funeral and he’s talking about me!” Kay remarked. “I’m going, ‘I’m on the news! The main news! This is ridiculous’.

“I should only be on the news if I’m dead!”
