Our old friends in the north: Cold Feet is back – and Helen Baxendale nearly was too

4 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

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.

Cold Feet warms up for return to TV: 'There's a great need for nostalgia'

5 August 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s 13 years since we saw Adam, Pete, Jenny, Karen and David, but in the new series, they are recognisably the characters audiences fell for in the 90s

It was, said actor Fay Ripley, like putting on a comfy old jumper, or running into a friend you hadn’t seen for years and remembering how much you liked them.

Thirteen years after the curtain fell on Cold Feet, most of the cast of the hugely influential ITV drama gathered in London on Friday to talk about its hotly anticipated return for a sixth series and the experience of stepping back into the roles that made each of them famous.

The Cold Feet reunion warms up – will the 90s hit work in 2016?

20 January 2016 7:46 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley, John Thomson, Hermione Norris and James Nesbitt have been seen together on the set of ITV’s revival – but will the show survive without Helen Baxendale?

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. About as easily as a floppy disk, you might say. We all remember, or rather are still trying to forget, »
