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

According to Manchester Evening News, moments later, an audience member tweeted: “First half of Peter Kay’s return absolutely hilarious.

“So good to see him back on stage (and he hasn’t ruled out more episodes of Max and Paddy!).”

The sitcom, which aired in 2004, was a spin-off from Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and starred Paddy McGuiness.

It 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.

The theme tune was written by Toni Baker and Peter Kay and 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!”

Despite the show being a huge success, only six, 30-minute episodes were ever made.

Fans have been buzzing about the possibility of more episodes on Twitter, with one person writing: “I would love this. Max and Paddy was comedy gold.”

Another added: “Would be brilliant if Max and Paddy came back, glad to see he’s wanting to do things as he’s been quiet for a while.”
