Bolton comic Peter Kay is back on the road for a new series of Peter Kay’s Car Share.
Fans will be thrilled to see Phoenix Nights funnyman Peter in the driving seat again for the heart-warming BBC comedy about two colleagues who share a car to work together, which was a massive ratings hit last year.
Peter plays assistant manager John Redmond and co-star Sian Gibson plays promotions rep Kayleigh Kitson in the sitcom which is filmed in and around Greater Manchester including Peter’s home town Bolton, Trafford and Salford.
At the end of 2015 Peter confirmed that a second series had been commissioned.
Earlier this year Car Share won the Best Comedy Show award at 2016 National Television Awards and Peter dedicated the prize to his comedy hero Billy Connolly.
At first he joked that he was keeping the prize because he had never had one before. But he later handed it over when Billy won the Special Recognition award.
Peter, whose character drives to and from work in a red Fiat while listening to fictional radio station Forever FM, previously said that he was waiting for brighter nights before he could start filming again.
The hilarious sitcom follows John and Kayleigh who have been thrown together in a company car share scheme as they journey to a major supermarket.
It looks as though his chracter John could be set to have a bit of run-in with a cyclist in the new series.
Peter acted out a scene where he has an argument with the cyclist who put a water bottle on his roof at a set of traffic light before speeding off.
Our photographer also captured Peter giving him a jolly wave as he walked along through the rain in between filming scenes in Salford.
In March Peter made a surprise appearance at a charity bash at the Lowry Hotel to auction the opportunity to appear as an extra on the show.
Guests at The Red Sea Pedestrians annual charity ball were amazed when the much-loved comedian walked in, got hold of the microphone and took to the stage at the event, raising £44,000.
