Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps set for special comeback

‘Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps’ is set for a comeback.
Actor Will Mellor – who played Gaz Wilkinson in all nine series of the classic BBC Two sitcom until 2011 – has teased a return for the show after all 79 episodes were recently added to iPlayer, with Gold also showing re-runs in the evening.
In an Instagram video, he said: "Recently, since ‘Two Pints’ came back, it is on at 11 o’clock every night on Gold, they are showing every episode, people have been messaging me about how much they miss the show and how much it was part of their growing up. Saying ‘please bring it back for a special or do something’.
"Well, I have been listening and reading your messages and I think we are going to get a Two Pints special off the ground. I spoke to Susan Nickson [the show's creator] and we are hopefully going to try and get a ‘Two Pints’ special going."
Will – who starred alongside Natalie Casey, Ralf Little, Kathryn Drysdale and Sheridan Smith – added that the episode would be a "thank you" to the show’s fans, and he told everyone to "watch this space".
He teased: "Just to say thank you for all the support of people who love the show and got behind it.
"Watch this space, just got to dot the ‘i’s and cross the ‘t’s and hopefully a ‘Two Pints’ special will be on the way."
The exciting news comes after it was confirmed ‘Gavin & Stacey’ will be back later this year for a Christmas special, and although she has revealed she hasn’t been asked to be involved, fans will be hoping Sheridan returns for ‘Two Pints’.
