His two-month run will begin in Belfast on April 22, 2022, before heading to Dublin, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Nottingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Leeds and London.

But the radio and television presenter will not be treating audiences in Norwich to the new show.

Promoting the tour, the Radio Norwich and North Norfolk Digital favourite said: "Whether you're a pro-European who has had the jab, or a Brexiteer who doesn't believe in vaccines, I want to build a bridge.

"For while we don't always agree, what really binds us as a nation is when we - all of us, together - can't stand something. Like speed bumps, or anything changing.

"So if you don't like anything changing, or speed bumps, come and see my new stage show. It's my plan to restore daylight to a nation plunged into darkness."
