Peter Kay will make his live television return as part of the BBC's charity fundraiser The Big Night In later this month.
For The Big Night In, the BBC has teamed up with Children in Need and Comic Relief to help "those most in need" during these "troubled times".
Actor Lenny Henry shared the news on Tuesday's episode of The One Show and added that Catherine Tate and Gary Barlow had also signed up for the three-hour event.
The broadcaster has said the show will feature "favourite famous faces trying to support, entertain, cheer up and help out anyone who needs any or all of those things".
"It will include big surprises, 'money can't buy' prizes, live music performances (from the artists' homes) and many of your favourite faces coming together (whilst safely apart) to do what they can for those that deserve something special," the BBC added.

The show will also give viewers the opportunity to donate, for those who feel able to do so, to help support vulnerable people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK who will be significantly impacted by the crisis.
Ruth Davison, Chief Executive of Comic Relief, said: “Throughout this extraordinary time the kindness and community spirit of people across the country has been outstanding.
"The Big Night In is the perfect opportunity to praise the heroes who are caring for us, feeding us, and lifting our spirits as we continue to help people most in need.”
The show will take place on BBC One on Thursday, April 23 from 7:00 to 10:00pm.
