PETE

TV Times - - Drama -

The care-home worker is lovedup with his no-non­sense wife, Jenny, but could there be trou­ble loom­ing for the cou­ple?

‘There’s real strength in this se­ries. It’s back to form. Jen and Pete are now re-cen­tred. She is study­ing and he is sup­port­ive and they are work­ing to­wards a bet­ter fu­ture to­gether. But they have an­other chal­lenge that they’re both work­ing through and the Gif­fords don’t get it easy. That’s the thing about Cold Feet: you don’t know what it’s go­ing to throw at you.

‘Pete also gets to per­form a heroic act in a canal in episode one. It was a grim day for me! I needed a wet­suit un­der my cos­tume and there’s silt at the bot­tom of the canal, which is like quick­sand, so it was kind of hairy. and good­ness knows what’s in that silt – I think I could feel Vic­to­rian skulls crack­ing un­der me as I walked on it!

‘There’s also a dan­ger of get­ting dis­eases from rats so the medic had the big­gest con­tainer of anti-bac­te­rial gel

I’ve ever seen be­cause the muck went ev­ery­where, even up our noses. We had to drink full-fat Coke af­ter­wards be­cause

ap­par­ently that de­stroys ev­ery­thing!’
