Omid Djalili has joked that he has so much fun on tour, Dara O'Briain is jealous of his set-up.

The stand-up comedian hits the road on October 14 for his Tour Of Duty show, and gets on so well with his tour manager, driver and warm-up act that fellow comedian Dara wanted to hang out with them.

He said: "I met Dara on tour, we crossed over and he was very jealous and wanted to hang out, because he travels just with one person.

"We can watch DVDs and chat, our stopping off to have a meal at the service station is a three-hour event. We stop, we have a chat, I think it's important."

Omid added that he was still a bit nervous getting back on tour for the first time in three-and-a-half years.

He said: "It feels daunting but very, very exciting as well, so much has happened in that time that I really feel there's a bigger and better tour in me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
