University of Salford alumni Peter Kay and Sian Gibson win National Television Award (NTA) for their hit comedy, Car Share.

The ex-graduates beat Benidorm, Still Open All Hours and The Big Bang Theory to win Best Comedy Show.

Sian Gibson collected the award last night (23 January) at the O2 Arena in London. She stated Peter Kay was ‘gutted’ he couldn’t be there:

“Obviously I have got to say thank you so much to Mr Peter Kay.

“He is gutted he can’t be here tonight but he sends his love. He is going to be over the moon so we’re going to go and ring him.”

This follows the news that Peter Kay decided to cancel his UK tour due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’.
