Peter Kay's '£30m for new shows'

Share article:

Peter Kay has an estimated £30 million war chest to fund new TV shows.

The "Car Share" star's company Goodnight Vienna Productions - which his wife Susan is also a director of - reportedly has £19.8 million of assets in cash, and his other production firm, Hussein Traders Limited, is also said to have £8 million.

A source close to the comedian told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's a massive kitty to help kick-start a whole new era of Kay comedy."

Last year, accounts for the "Max and Paddy" star revealed he had a big kitty to fund up-and-coming projects.

The 44-year-old funnyman has recently been starring as supermarket worker John Redmond in the BBC One show "Peter Kay's Car Share", which will come to an end next week, and Peter has already hinted he is working on his "next project".

Speaking on how he felt about the BAFTA Award-winning show ending, Peter said: "One person who shouldn't be overlooked is Matt Brown, he edited the whole series and creatively he added a lot of detail. I'll miss working with him until the next project."

The comedian - who cancelled a £40m UK tour due to "unforeseen family circumstances" in December - also looks set to team up with fellow "Car Share" star Sian Gibson, who plays Kayleigh Kitson in the show, again one day.

She admitted they will "definitely" join forces on another project, and hinted the forthcoming "Car Share" finale - which airs on Monday (28.05.18) - may not be the final episode of the programme.

She said: "Never say never."

Peter joked: "Well, unless you're waiting on an invite to Sian's house."
