    Peter Kay is set to break the hearts of millions of fans by axing his hugely popular Car Share.

    The show starred Peter as supermarket boss John Redmond as he gave colleague Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson) a lift to work.

    Fans who tuned in from 2015 to 2020, saw the pair slowly fall for each other on their hilarious journeys to and from work.

    Peter has since hinted at it making a return to the screens.

    But now it seems it is the end of the road for the BBC show after a total of 12 episodes.

    This week Peter moved to dissolve the firm that he set up to take in cash paid for making the shows – shot around Greater Manchester.

    The firm will be wound-up by a liquidator and will cease trading.

    Latest accounts for the firm called Goodnight Vienna Production (Car Share) Ltd were filed to Companies House in a year ago and showed all cash and assets had already been withdrawn.

    During a q&a at a gig last year, he said he “might do” a new instalment.

    And he added “Of all the things I’ve ever done, that’s my favourite of all. I love being with Sian and we had a good laugh.”

    But now after shutting down the Car Share firm and releasing dates for a monster tour, it is unlikely the star will have the time to film yet more episodes.

    And he doesn’t need the cash because he has almost £50m held in just two companies and is set to rake tens of millions more from his new monster tour.

    Figures for his Hussein Traders Ltd – released by his accountants this week – show that he has a whopping £22.6m tied up in investments.

    And another of his firms Good Night Vienna Productions has cash deposits of an eye-watering £24.8m.

    And the comic has just flogged an estimated £50m of tickets to his new tour.

    Peter’s upcoming events will be his first tour in 12 years, and includes a massive 30-day residency at London’s O2 Arena.

    And he will play to almost one million people.
