Some much-needed comic relief.
In a bid to cheer up the nation, Peter Kay has announced that he’ll be bringing back his much-loved Car Share – announcing the exciting news this afternoon in a tweet to fans.
The unexpected announcement follows this morning’s news that the Bolton-born comedian would be returning to TV as part of the BBC’s The Big Night In charity show, which will raise money for the current Coronavirus pandemic. The appearance will mark Kay’s official return to television, and will be his first public appearance since 2018. Yep, it’s been two whole years without our favourite funny man, and we can’t wait to welcome him back.
Giving fans a double dose of good news, Peter Kay said to his Twitter followers: “Car Share Returns With A Special Audio Only Episode @sianygibby @pcolemanchester and myself got together via t’internet and wrote a new short episode in an effort to try cheer people up. It’s on @bbciplayer on Good Friday 10th April. Enjoy and #StayHomeSaveLives”
The news has been well received by fans who thought they’d seen the last of Kay’s John Redmond and Sian Gibson’s Kayleigh Kitson, with the fan-fave show ending with a teary goodbye just two years ago. Here are some of the best fan reactions so far:
While the one-off instalment is audio only, fans can expect both Peter Kay and Sian Gibson to be on top form as always as they reprise their characters, with the new episode dropping this Friday, 10th April.
