Peter Kay has revealed that he may be giving in to the desperate pleas of Phoenix Nights fans, as he's considering making a spin-off film for the hugely popular early-00s comedy series.

Starring Kay as Brian Potter, the owner of The Phoenix Club, Phoenix Nights aired for just two series before it ended on a high in 2002, prompting a short-lived spin-off in the form of Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere.

Since then, we've all been begging Peter Kay for more - and while nothing's set in stone just yet, he's not saying no.

In a pre-recorded video shown to a crowd at a special charity screening of Phoenix Nights, he confirmed what none of us wanted to hear when he said there would be no further series.

However, he's not dismissing a future project of some sort, having admitted he's been 'thinking' about a film.

According to Bolton News, the comedian said: "People always ask, 'Will there be more Phoenix Nights?' and I can now confirm there won't - but I am thinking of a film."

The charity screenings were raising money for Cancer Research UK, while also celebrating the anniversary of the cult TV show, which followed the trials and tribulations of club owner Brian Potter as he tried to carve out a niche for himself once again in the world of social club management.

Kay continued: "It should have been the twentieth anniversary but I got the dates wrong.

"I arranged it, booked the venue, sorted the posters and then realised, I don't think it's been 20 years."

Along with three screenings in London, which took place at the weekend, there are also forthcoming events in Manchester and Blackpool next month.

And if a film is on the cards, I'd imagine Kay wouldn't have to work too hard to get the old gang back together.

After all, his former co-star Paddy McGuinness - who played bounced Paddy O'Shea - has previously said he'd be up for doing something.

And he also reckons the others would be, having told The Daily Star: "It was great. There's always talk about doing another one.

"It's just time, it's just getting everyone together. But everyone is up for it."
