Hinting another instalment could be on the horizon, she said: “I remember you asking me about this when the first movie came out.

“It’s much the same with everybody – we all had such a ball doing the first film that everybody across the board would love to do another one.”

However, due to the ongoing lockdown restrictions, it may be a while before any potential filming could go ahead.

“Things are so tricky at the minute,” Phyllis added. “There may be moves a foot but who knows?

“We shall find out in due course – but it wouldn’t be for a while yet if it ever did.

“Fingers crossed it does!”

“Look who it is,” Lorraine gushed after spotting Kevin in the background.

After realising he had been seen on camera, the star decided to pull up a chair and join in the interview for a few moments.

During lockdown, Phyllis has been narrating new episodes of Channel 5 series The Highland Vet.

Kevin has been helping his wife by being her sound man as she is “not the best with the technical side of things”.
