Vernon Kay will be coming back to his hometown in January for an exclusive Q&A event with Coronation Street and Emmerdale stars. 

Kay, 47, will be hosting the event at the Bolton Whites Hotel on January 29 where he will quiz three northern special guests about their lives on TV.

Andy Whyment, who came second place on the 2019 series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, is best known for playing Kirk Sutherland in Corrie since 2000 and will be joining the event. 

Sam Aston, also known as Chesney Brown in Corrie, and Bury-born Lisa Riley, who portrayed Mandy Dingle on Emmerdale, will also be there. 

The audience will also have the chance to ask questions to the special guests.

Kay will be donating his fee to Bolton Wanderers in the Community.

There will be a DJ at the end of the night and live entertainment, including House Of Angels vocalist and Bolton-born Megan Wroe performing.

The night kicks off at 7pm and promises to bring you out of the January slump and celebrate the new year with style. 

Kay, originally from Bolton, now lives in Beaconsfield with his wife Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly and they share two children. 

Last year he came third in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, which was filmed in Wales due to the pandemic.
