Honestly, I haven’t seen it since so I couldn’t say whether or not it was inappropriate for my parents to let me watch the show, but for some reason I’ve always had a sort of fondness for it.
I like the sh*t title. Far too long and it doesn’t come close to rolling off the tongue. I like the fact that it was like England’s answer to Friends and it was the absolute antithesis of the sitcom. I like the title… You know? The list goes on.
Running from 2001 to 2011, Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps was a bit of a cult classic, and has since had repeats aired on Gold, meaning people have been able to dip back in to the show.
With that, obviously, cries for more have flooded into Twitter thick and fast, and like the angel Gabriel himself, Will Mellor posted to Instagram with some bloody good news.
Weird that he’s not verified.
Addressing his fans, the man behind Gaz said:
“Alright people, sorry I have not been on for a while, I have been waiting for something to tell you – some news, you know what I mean?
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. 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 Is and cross the Ts and hopefully a Two Pints special will be on the way.”
First Gavin and Stacey and now this.
What a year.
