PHOENIX Nights may be about to make a sensational telly comeback.
Paddy McGuinness confirmed the whole cast, including Peter Kay, wants to make a new series.
The classic comedy won millions of fans but hasn’t been on our screens since 2002.
However Paddy, who played doorman Paddy O’Shea, said it was just a matter of time before it comes back. He said: “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.”
Co-written by Peter, Neil Fitzmaurice and Dave Spikey, the sitcom about a working men’s club ran for two series on Channel 4.
The cast then reunited in 2015 for sell-out shows that raised £5million for Comic Relief.
Paddy, 46, added: “We did do it live and that went really well, we sold out five nights playing to 15,000 people a night and that were great.”
Car Share star Peter, who called off his highly anticipated stand-up tour two years ago, has previously revealed a third series set at the Phoenix Club is already written.
THIS year has been a great one for TV comebacks and reboots. Telly fans have been spoilt for choice. And the good news is, there is still more to come. Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes were met by rave reviews from fans. Gavin and Stacey will also return at Christmas for a special episode. Hopefully, Phoenix Nights will be back on our screens soon as well. Paddy McGuinness has confirmed the cast wants to make a new series. He says it is just about “getting everyone together”. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it won’t be long. Meanwhile, we have I’m A Celebrity to get us through the long winter. The start is just days away. British telly has rarely been in a better place than it is right now. Long may it continue!
