Paddy McGuinness has teased fans with a huge hint that Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere could be making an epic comeback.

The former Take Me Out host even confessed that two hour-long episodes are ready to go, as they've already been written.

The beloved Channel 4 series, which aired in 2004, followed Bolton doormen Maxwell "Max" Bygraves and Patrick "Paddy" O'Shea as they tour around the UK in their campervan.

Paddy played on the role of Patrick, while fellow comedian Peter Kay played Max.

Now Paddy has revealed that the comedy could be about to return after Peter teased the sitcom's comeback last month during a special gig in Manchester.

The comedian and presenter, 48, told The Sun: "Peter did a live show a week or so back and he’s thrown it out there. But that’s what he does.

"He makes an appearance once every three or four years, says we’re going to do some Max and Paddy, then no one sees him again.

"And then every interview I do it’s like, ‘When’s it back?’

"I’m texting him like, ‘Why have you done that again?’ But if you look at what we’ve already written, you think, ‘That will go down really well’."

The Channel 4 show ran for just one series from November to December 2004.

Discussing how much he loved making the show at the Manchester Apollo, Paddy let loose that him and Peter actually have two special episodes already in the bank which were never aired.

He said: "I loved making Max And Paddy, it was one of the best times we ever had filming and we had such a good laugh.

"We actually wrote two Christmas specials and then we never made them – so you never know."

Peter, 48, previously revealed there wasn't the opportunity to make more Max and Paddy because of Paddy’s success hosting ITV’s Saturday night dating series Take Me Out.

The much-loved comedian made a special return to the stage early last month after spending recent years out of the spotlight.

He graced the showbiz limelight again for a day with two sell-out Q&A shows in aid of Laura Nuttall, 21, from Pendle in Lancashire, who is battling Glioblastoma, a grade four brain cancer.

Peter donated all profits from his two Doing It For Laura shows – a matinee and evening performance – to Laura with the money from the events going towards paying for life-saving treatment.
