She penned: “Hiya Peter, hope you’re well. I’ve had a bit of a nightmare if I’m honest love.

“I tried to buy 10 tickets for your show which was proving quite difficult, and when I finally did get onto Ticketmaster. I was so excited, that I accidentally bought the wrong ones.

“Is there any way you can help me with this at all? Couple of VIPs for my dedication to the garlic bread and cheesecake gags?”

She told The Mirror: “I’m with 3 network and was trying to get the pre-sale through there for two hours.

“I finally got on and got my code for Peter Kay pre-sale, and when it took me through to the Ticketmaster website I was so stressed about making sure I got the tickets that I didn’t realise that not all the dates and shows listed were for Peter Kay, some were for other events.”

Peter took a step back from the public eye in 2017 when he cancelled his huge 14-month tour due to “unforeseen family circumstances”.
