After rumours that left even the cast guessing and an ill-advised plan for Rachel to return as a ghost, Britain’s answer to Friends finally returns after 13 years. Helen Pidd visits the original gang on set to see if they can rekindle the magic
Fay Ripley was so worried the new series of Cold Feet would be rubbish that her imagination went into overdrive the night before filming was due to begin. “I started to pray, even though I don’t believe in God, that my taxi would have an accident and hit a pedestrian,” she says brightly outside her trailer in Manchester.
It seemed perfectly logical at the time: her duties as a witness (the pedestrian didn’t die), combined with the stress of the accident, would prevent her from turning up to reprise the character she last played in the early days of the new millennium.

From six thirtysomethings to five fiftysomethings, Cold Feet is well and truly back. ITV has released the first image of the reunited cast, posing cheerfully at a read-through of the script ahead of filming. It has been 13 years. How do they look? Weirdly, almost exactly the same but with marginally better hair. This does not necessarily bode well for a show as firmly rooted in the 1990s as a floppy disk. As we all know, great telly from that particular decade, characterised as it was by successful, sharp-suited horny people hooking up in glass-fronted soulless bars, does not update easily.
