Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps To Return After 10-Year Absence

The creator of BBC comedy Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps has confirmed the show will return to our screens after a 10-year absence.

While we don't know exactly when the show will be back, we can rest assured that Susan Nickson - the creator of the show - will be back at the helm, alongside stars Ralf Little and Will Mellor.

Little and Mellor played Jonny Keogh and Gaz Wilkinson respectively, and they'll have some working out to do given that Keogh was killed off at the end of the last run when he was eaten by a shark.

Yep, it'll take some doing to come back from that.

Anyway, they've got time to think it over, because - as Nicklin pointed out - they're waiting on the BBC and the process has so far been 'extremely slow'.

She said: "So basically what you've got, it's me, Will, Ralf and all three of us are just going 'yeah, we're here, we'll do it' and the BBC are going 'ah brilliant, yeah let's do it' and I'm sort of sat here going 'OK, when?' and they go 'well, we don't know'.

"So, what we've got is a corporation that has no idea."

The show, which finished up back in 2011, also starred actors such as Sheridan Smith, Natalie Casey, and Kathryn Drysdale.

It's not clear whether they'll all be returning, but Nicklin has said the new series will focus on Little and Mellor's character, as they attempt to find their way through a changed world where things aren't quite what they were any more.

She explained how she wanted to explore the idea of 'two ageing working class geezers' not understanding that some blokes aren't as nice as them.

Nicklin said: "I want to see the comforting story of people like Gaz and Jonny, who live in a world where bad guys don't exist.

"I want them to acknowledge the bad guys are out there though, but I don't want Gaz and Jonny to be them."

One person who might not be on board is Smith, who - according to Mellor - hasn't spoken to him for several years now.

He told the Mirror: "I've not seen Sheridan or spoke to Sheridan in four years. I rang her for a while and just nothing, so I don't know her anymore.

"I wish her all the best, but she hasn't called me in years."

We'll just have to see what happens.
