The hit sitcom originally ran between 2001 and 2011, but Susan Nickson - the show's creator - has now confirmed that it'll make a TV comeback and she's already held talks with the BBC about a new series.

Speaking on the 'Drama School Dropout' podcast, Susan explained: "We are talking to the BBC. They are a corporation and in a corporation there are many cogs and those cogs move extremely slowly.

"So basically what you've got, it's me, Will [Mellor], Ralf [Little] and all three of us are just going, 'Yeah, we're here, we'll do it,' and the BBC are going, 'Ah brilliant, yeah let's do it,' and I'm sort of sat here going, 'OK, when?' and they go, 'Well, we don't know'. So, what we're got is a corporation that has no idea."

During the interview, Susan confirmed that Will and Ralf - who played Gaz and Jonny respectively - have both already committed to reprising their on-screen characters.

Will, 45, previously admitted he'd jump at the chance to revisit his role, saying he had "great fun" playing the character of Gaz.

Asked if he'd be interested in a 'Two Pints' revival, Will replied: "Why not? There are possibilities and I'm up for doing a special or anything like that, because I've got great memories of that show.

"People enjoyed it and liked it for what it was. So for the fans of the show who've got great memories, I'd do it for them, no problem at all.

"I loved playing the character of Gaz, as he was great fun to play. Twenty years has just flown by. Why not revisit it?"
