Funnyman Kay's DVD sales top 10m

Peter Kay has topped the 10 million mark for sales of his DVDs

Peter Kay has become the first British comedian to sell more than 10 million copies of his DVDs.

The Bolton comic, 38, has notched up 10,291,624 total sales for The Tour That Didn't Tour - Tour, and previous hits including Phoenix Nights and That Peter Kay Thing.

Britain's biggest-selling comedian said he was amazed to have enjoyed more DVD sales than Avatar and Mamma Mia! put together.

He joked: "It's unbelievable to have sold so many DVDs. Funnily enough I've not got any of my own as my family take them all, although ironically I have got two copies of Avatar and three Mamma Mias."

The star played to a record 1.2 million people during his most recent tour, becoming the biggest and fastest-selling stand-up comedian in the world.

If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
