Pete Kay Confirms There Will Be Two 'Car Share' Specials

Good news for fans of Peter Kay's hit-show Car Share, as the comedian has announced that the show would be back for two special episodes.

Making a special guest appearance on last night's Children in Need, Kay revealed that John and Kayleigh would be coming back for two more journeys, despite previously saying that he wouldn't be making any more episodes.

Confirming the news, Kay said: "It's been a very hard secret to keep. We were getting constant abuse about it. People have been very angry the series ended in that way."

The show really does need to come back, so that the viewers can find out what happened to the pair. Series two ended with it looking like they'd gone their separate ways, with Kayleigh telling John she loved him and storming out of the car to get into a taxi.

The special will pick up where the last series ended and hopefully give us all what we want (for the pair to get together, obviously).

There will also be another episode, called Car Share: Unscripted, which is going to be completely improvised.

Kay said: "We were always very fond of ad-libbing around the script when we were filming the series so we decided to see what would happen if we took the script away and just relied on just our chemistry alone, reacting to whatever came on the radio."

Adding: "It's nothing to do with the story - just us having a laugh."


The Bolton-born comedian had previously said he didn't want to carry the show on beyond its peak, saying: "I am absolutely delighted and overwhelmed by everybody's support and the fact that everyone's loved it so much has been wonderful for everyone who's made it, but you're better quitting while you're ahead."

But audiences were left demanding more after the way the second series ended, and were pretty bloody pleased about the announcement over on Twitter:

It looks like there shouldn't be too much of a wait, with Car Share: Unscripted due to air 'soon' and the finale at some point next year. No one likes that sort of ambiguity but it looks like we'll just have to sit here and wait until more information is released.
