John Cleese UK tour is a show 'for fans'

The actor and comedian, John Cleese, is to embark on his first UK tour since he was a member of the Monty Python team in the 1970s.

Dubbed the "alimony" tour, it will start in Cambridge in early May before visiting 10 other cities.

The 71-year-old recently divorced his third wife, and is having to pay her more than £12 million as a settlement.

The tour will go to Liverpool and Salford and BBC North-West Tonight presenter, Gordon Burns, spoke to the comedian about what fans could expect from the show.
