The final episode of Car Share screened on Tuesday and fans were quick to express their disappointment at its conclusion
Fans of Peter Kay’s Bafta-winning series Car Share have been left ‘heartbroken’ by the show’s final episode.
Hours before Tuesday night’s season two finale, the comedian revealed it would be the end of the road for the hugely popular BBC1 sitcom about two supermarket employees who share their daily drive.
Viewers hoping to see Peter’s John Redmond finally woo his carpool companion Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson) were left ‘gutted’ as he failed to reciprocate her advances.
Posting on Twitter, fans called for another series or at least a one-off Christmas special.
TV critic Ian Hyland made a good point about the oft-mentioned Christmas campaign in the comedy.
Earlier on Tuesday Peter told BBC Radio Manchester: “There’s not going to be a series three.”
As the shocked presenters tried to persuade him otherwise, he continued: “There’s not… there’s not. You’ve got to get out while the going’s good.”
Last year Peter won two Bafta TV awards for the show, including best scripted comedy and best male performance in a comedy programme for his role as assistant manager John.
While the pair’s will-they-won’t-they relationship quickly became a favourite aspect for fans after the show’s launch in 2015, Peter recently said he never intended it to turn into such a ‘subtle romance’.
