Jason Manford is set for another stand-up tour with the announcement of new work Like Me, three years after his Muddle Class show.

The comedian, who was recently revealed to have been masquerading as Hedgehog on The Masked Singer, is planning on a 99-date tour run across the UK and Ireland.

It will kick off in Basingstoke in February next year before continuing on to the autumn where he will round it off with a homecoming show at Manchester Arena of 23 October.

"In these trying times, it's always important to be able to get away for a couple of hours and exercise the old chuckle muscle! So, I'm coming to a venue near you in 2021, so we can have a good laugh together. See you then!"

Tickets for the event are set to go on sale on Friday 28 February on 10am, with pre-sale tickets available from 10am on Wednesday 26 February.

Manford is also undertaking work-in-progress performances of the stand-up show which will take place this year, including one at Edinburgh Festival.

The father-of-five made it all the way to the final on The Masked Singer where he placed as runner-up.

He lost out to Queen Bee, who was exposed as Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts, in the last instalment of the series.

Manford managed to keep his participation in the show a secret from his children though, who found out at the same time viewers did.
