The 43-year-old actor, who played Gaz Wilkinson in Two Pints, said he has been in talks with the show's writer, Susan Nickson, to get a special episode off the ground.

With a big grin, he told fans: "People have been messaging me about how much they miss the show and how much it was part of their growing up. Saying: 'Please bring it back for a special or do something'.

"Well, I have been listening and reading your messages and I think we are going to get a Two Pints special off the ground."

"Watch this space, just got to dot the 'i's and cross the 't's and hopefully a Two Pints special will be on the way."

Two Pints was a huge hit when it ran from 2001 to 2011 on BBC Three.

The furore around the show seems to have escalated since Gold began playing re-runs of the comedy this month.

If the potential reboot includes original characters, favourite Sheridan, 37, could be back as Janet.

Sheridan recently said she won't be returning to her role as Smithie's sister Rudi in Gavin and Stacey.
