Phoenix Nights to return as Peter Kay plots comeback with Paddy McGuinness

PETER Kay and Paddy McGuinness could be about to make a sensational return to our screens with a Phoenix Nights reboot.

The hit comedy series last aired in 2002, but 40-year-old Paddy has teased it is time for a comeback.

The Take Me Out host revealed that the entire cast want to make a new series of the Channel 4 sitcom – including co-creator Peter.

The Bolton-born comic retreated from the spotlight in 2017, sensationally cancelling his highly-anticipated tour over "unforeseen family circumstances".

Peter, 46, has rarely been seen since – but Paddy is adamant that he'd return for the show.

Speaking to The Daily Star, Paddy shared: "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."

The programme was about a working men's club and ran for just two series in the early noughties.

The cast reunited in 2015 for a special charity live show – raising £5million for Comic Relief.

In 2006, Peter revealed that he had already written a third series of Phoenix Nights, but in 2009 co-creator Dave Spikey claimed that there were no plans for the series to return.

Earlier this week, Peter became the victim of another cruel death hoax when #RIPPeterKay trended on Twitter.

The star found himself at the centre of similar rumours last year, with football legend Peter Reid among those who shared the news in error.
