Paddy McGuinness has teased fans with a hint that Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere could return.

The 2004 series followed Bolton doormen Maxwell ‘Max’ Bygraves and Patrick ‘Paddy’ O’Shea as they tour around the UK in their campervan.

Paddy played on the role of Patrick, while Peter Kay played Max.

Now Paddy has revealed comedy could be about to return after Peter teased the sitcom’s comeback last month during a special gig in Manchester.

The comedian and presenter, 48, 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?’.



The comedy only aired for one series back in 2004

“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’.”

Broadcast on Channel Four, it ran for just one series from November to December 2004.

Peter didn’t rule out a return of the sitcom at his recent Q&A show at the Manchester Apollo.

“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 and then we never made them – so you never know.”

Peter, 48, previously revealed there wasn’t the opportunity to make more Max and Paddy because of Paddy’s success hosting ITV’s Saturday night dating series Take Me Out.

The much-loved comedian made a special return to the stage early last month after spending recent years out of the spotlight.



Peter Kay made a brief return to the spotlight last month

He made returned to showbiz for a day with two sell-out Q&A shows in aid of Laura Nuttall, 21, from Pendle in Lancashire, who is battling Glioblastoma, a grade four brain cancer.

Peter donated all profits from his two ‘Doing It For Laura’ shows – a matinee and evening performance – to Laura with the money from the events going towards paying for life-saving treatment.
