Paddy McGuiness has hinted that Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere could return with brand new episodes. 

The 48-year-old said he believes what he and Peter Kay have ‘already written’ together will ‘go down really well’ with fans of the hit show which ended in 2004.

He told The Sun: “Peter did a live show a week or so back and he’s thrown it out there. But that’s what he does.

“He makes an appearance once every three or four years, says we’re going to do some Max and Paddy, then no one sees him again. And then every interview I do it’s like, ‘When’s it back?’

“I’m texting him like, ‘Why have you done that again?’. But if you look at what we’ve already written, you think, That will go down really well.”

Kay, who returned to the stage for a Q&A comeback show at the Manchester Apollo last month, told fans he ‘loved’ making the show as it was ‘such a good laugh’.

He said: “I loved making Max and Paddy – it was one of the best times we ever had filming and we had such a good laugh. 

“We actually wrote two Christmas specials, then we never made them, so you never know.”

The Channel 4 comedy was a spin-off from Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and followed two fugitive doormen, Maxwell ‘Max’ Bygraves, played by Kay, and Patrick ‘Paddy’ O’Shea, played by McGuiness, as they drove around the UK in their motor home.

Toni Baker and Peter Kay wrote the theme tune which featured the hilarious lyrics: “Don’t know where we’re going, Got no way of knowing, Driving on the Road to Nowhere. Sponging for a living, Checkin’ out the women, Riding on the Road to Nowhere… And we don’t take shit from anyone, The only thing we wanna do is have some fun. We’re Max and Paddy (Paddy and Max!), And best of all, we don’t pay council tax.”

We hope we’ll get to hear it on our screens again very soon!
