Paddy McGuiness has announced he will bring his first stand-up comedy tour in eight years to Ipswich. 

The TV star has announced 40 dates across the UK for his Nearly There tour starting next year. 

The tour will stretch through 2024 and 2025 with the comedian stopping off at the Regent Theatre on February 20, 2025. 

The former Take Me Out presenter is a much-loved presence on British TV, from roles in Phoenix Nights, Max and Paddy and The Keith and Paddy Picture Show to presenting Top Gear. 

Paddy said: “It’s been eight years since my last tour and there’s lots of things to laugh about. 

"I’m looking forward to getting back in front of a live audience, along with running the gauntlet of cancel culture, click bait and fake news."
