Cold Feet set for more dramatic storylines

Cold Feet set for more dramatic storylines

The next series of 'Cold Feet' is set 10 months after the last.

The popular show returned to ITV in 2016 after a 13-year absence and fans will get to follow the lives of Adam, David, Karen, Pete and Jenny - played by James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst, Hermione Norris, John and Fay Ripley respectively - again in September.

A lot has happened in that time, the finale saw Adam and Tina finally hit it off and they've been inseparable ever since, living across the hall from each other.

Adam is keen to take their relationship to the next level and a proposal could be on the cards, but it all depends on Tina who doesn't appear to be thinking that far ahead.

There is also trouble in paradise for married couple Jenny [Fay Ripley] and Pete [John Thomson].

The latter became suicidal last season and is now working as a chauffeur, but he is desperately seeking appreciation from his wife, who is busy making sure their teenage daughter Chloe is dealing with the news that Pete isn't her real father, putting pressure on the couple's relationship.

Elsewhere, Karen [Hermione Norris] is hyped about launching her own publishing house, but all is not as well as it seems after she hires Romana [Jacey Salles] as a personal assistant.

And finally, after David [Robert Bathurst] lost his high-paid finance job he's struggling to get by selling insurance and his love life is also on a downer after his ex Karen snubbed him.

After a successful return for the show last year, bosses are keen to keep viewers hooked and while there is plenty of drama in store, there will also be some humour.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Life isn't easy for any of the characters this time around.

"But that doesn't mean there won't be laughs.

"The writers are hoping this series will be even more popular with fans."

'Cold Feet' is expected to air on ITV on September 8.
