Wigan International Jazz Festival fans went wild when one of Britain’s top comics gate-crashed Jools Holland’s gig.

There was a roar of delight when Peter Kay took to the stage of the Robin Park Sports Centre to introduce Chris Difford from the band Squeeze of whom the stand-up and actor is a huge fan.

Kay informed the crowd that he had just had his tea at the Hind’s Head, presumably at Charnock Richard, near Standish.

Wonder if he had garlic bread?
