Paddy McGuinness Says Max And Paddy’s Road To Nowhere Will Return

Paddy McGuinness has lifted the lid on those Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere revival rumours.

Peter Kay let loose on a stand up show last month that they have two hour-long episodes ready to go and that revelation sent fans into a frenzy.

He told the crowd: "I loved making Max and Paddy - it was one of the best times we ever had filming and we had such a good laugh. We actually wrote two Christmas specials, then we never made them, so you never know."

Paddy has now spoken to The Sun about these revival comments, adding that he's hopeful they can get their ideas into production.

"Peter did a live show a week or so back and he's thrown it out there. But that's what he does," he said.

"He makes an appearance once every three or four years, says we're going to do some Max and Paddy, then no one sees him again. And then every interview I do it's like, 'When's it back?'

"I'm texting him like, 'Why have you done that again?'. But if you look at what we've already written, you think, 'That will go down really well'."

We first two Paddy and Peter's hilarious characters in Phoenix Nights, which ended in 2002.

It was followed up in 2004 with a spin-off in the form of Max And Paddy's Road To Nowhere.

The series saw the two Phoenix Club bouncers, Max (Peter Kay) and Paddy (Paddy McGuinness), as they embarked on their easy-rider lifestyle.

Channel 4 only made one six-episode series, but it was enough to make fans call for more ever since it ended.

Back in 2017, Paddy told LADbible that he's dead keen to get a revival off the ground, however it needs to strike the right tone.

"We've always said we'd like to do it again," he said. "And I know we've got stuff written with Max and Paddy as well, but that will be when it will be.

"I know with Max and Paddy, we have two one-hour specials in the bag - so that's done.

"We've been mates since we were kids, and you know, we're always talking about doing things but I've no doubt that one day we'll get back together. But I wouldn't hold your breath at the minute."

Let's hope we get to see it soon.
