Peter Kay's Car Share to return

...but not for a while

Peter Kay's Car Share is to return for a second series.

The comedian said the scripts have been written – but that they will have to wait for lighter evenings until they can film it.

'We wrote it a while back now, and we're just waiting for light nights,' Kay told BBC Radio Wales presenter Eleri Sion.

'Because we drive around a lot we need to shoot it in May/June. People keep saying, "Why don't you do a Christmas special?" The problem is it goes dark at half seven. You can't really drive around in the dark.

'It's really difficult to light the inside of the car, it's very boring and technical, but driving around in May and June it doesn't go dark until 10 o'clock at night so you can film until about 8 o'clock… we need as much daylight as we can get so we plan to film in next May and June.'

Kay added the show had been a bit of a gamble, mainly featuring just two supermarket colleagues, played by himself and Sian Gibson, chatting during their commute.

'I was delighted with the response it got because I was never too sure people would like it because it was just two people in a car talking and I thought, will people in this day and age sit and watch that? I did me best, and me and Sian had a wonderful time writing it and working on it. Because we've known each other for 20 years and we have such a good relationship and chemistry.'

Car Share was created by Tim Reid and Paul Coleman.

The BBC is to pay tribute to Kay in a one-off show to air on Christmas Eve.
