The ITV drama is set to return to screens very soon...
It’s official: ITV comedy-drama Cold Feet is set to return to our screens after 13 years away, and the cast are already rehearsing their script before filming begins.
Yep – along with Keenan and Kel, velvet chokers and The Wild Thornberries, the TV show is making a comeback. Because in case you hadn’t noticed, we all really like the 90s right now.
Taking Downton Abbey’s Sunday night slot on ITV, the show will feature the return of Fay Ripley, James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, John Thomson and Robert Bathurst too. Sadly, Helen Baxendale won’t be returning, as her character Rachel was killed in a car crash in the last series.
Speaking to The Mirror, Fay, who played Jenny Gifford in the series, confirmed that the show is scheduled to return.
She said: ‘Ten years have passed, anything could have happened. I’m hoping it’s not written that I’ve got very thin, because that’s not happened!
‘I still have a relationship with John. I reckon we’ll pretty much pick up where we were. We’re still friends. The fondness we have for each other is probably key to that character. That’s if they’re still married? Who knows?’
And Fay also confirmed that Helen’s character Rachel won’t be returning at all, even in flashback scenes.
‘The only thing I do know is that Helen isn’t going to be doing it and that’s actually going to be the hardest thing because we are all probably going to slot back into the on-set roles that we had, but Helen won’t be there,’ she said while appearing on Loose Women in late 2015. ‘So it’ll be slightly odd, and she is such a lovely girl and friend of mine.’
Cold Feet followed the lives and relationships of 30-somethings in Manchester and was remade in over 30 countries around the world following its success here. The show ran for five series from 1998 to 2003, drawing in an audience of over 10 million for the season finale.
