Simon Pegg Left Nick Frost Out In The Woods After Bender

Simon Pegg has revealed he once left Nick Frost knocked out after a bender in the woods.

The pair opened up about a wild night out where the pals headed out with nothing more than four litres of cider.

After filling their boots with booze, Pegg, 50, decided it was time to go and get some grub, and his Spaced co-star, 48, suffered a bang to the head, which knocked him out.

But rather than help his pal, Pegg thought Frost was messing with him and decided to head on in search of food.

Speaking to SFX magazine about the incident in Highgate, North London, Frost said: "We got to a point where Simon said, 'Let's go and get a Chinese,' and on that journey back I slipped and hit my head on a log and lay unconscious.

"But Simon thought I was f***ing about, so he just went off."

Pegg added: "He's never forgiven me."

Frost then said: "I came back hours later and he was sat having a Chinese."

To which Pegg replied: "I thought he was pulling the longest game - I opened the door and he was there all soaking wet and was, like, 'You left me!'"

But it's good to see they haven't let the incident come between them, teaming up numerous times over the years.

Their most recent venture is Amazon series Truth Seekers, which was released late last year.

The comedy-horror series sees the duo unite once again on-screen, with the pair also co-writing the show with Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz.

A synopsis reads: "Truth Seekers is a supernatural comedy series about a team of part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK, sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see.

"However, as they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers and abandoned hospitals with their array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more terrifying and even deadly, as they begin to uncover a conspiracy that could bring about Armageddon for the entire human race.

"Set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters, Truth Seekers mixes humour with the fear."

However, despite the most recent project proving a hit, Frost poured cold water on any hopes that they would be adding to the Cornetto Trilogy.

Speaking last year, he cast aside any semblance of doubt when asked, simply replying: "No and no."

Though there might be a glimmer of hope in it, with Pegg having previously said he would be interested in revisiting the world of Hot Fuzz, saying: "I think it's the one film out of those three movies that lends itself to a sequel, in that those kind of buddy-cop action movies often were sequelised."

So who knows.
