The set features showband The Harry's, the legendary Stouffer the Cat, a section for Tongans, the debut of Harry's son Gary from his first marriage and whistling of chart hits from his grandson Sam.

Asked about the name of the tour, Hill told Metro: "We had a lot of sausages on TV Burp. Sausages are funny.

"There are a couple of specific things in the show that relate to sausages. I'm hoping to get a big sausage made."

He added of choosing theatres rather than arenas: "That's the best size for me to have fun and for the audience to enjoy it.

"I don't think I could sell enough tickets for the enormodomes. Stand-up has taken off since I stopped doing it. It really started to pay.

"The biggest place people used to do was the Hammersmith Apollo. I've been enjoying doing the clubs and smaller places preparing for the tour. If you talk to the audience a lot, I don't think it works in the bigger places."

Other destinations taken in on the tour include Oxford, Liverpool, York, Coventry, Tunbridge Wells, Nottingham, Derby, Southend, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Leicester, Bournemouth, Sheffield, Watford, Northampton, Guildford, Ipswich, Brighton, Cambridge, Newcastle, Bristol, Salford, Glasgow, London and Leeds.

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Thursday, August 23 via Harry Hill Live, which also features full venue details.
