Car Share won't be back for a third series - or in fact for any new episodes EVER.

Peter Kay has ruled out writing any more for the show following tonight's Series 2 finale.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: "There's not going to be a series three so it won't ever happen. You've got to get out while the going's good. No Christmas special, no."

Peter explained his decision: "You're better quitting while you're ahead. There's only so much you can do in a car and the last thing you want to do is ruin it because I think it's a lovely thing."

"It's been wonderful working with Sian, who's one of my closest friends in the world. We have a good laugh but I think sometimes you've got to just leave things. You need good ideas – that's the problem. You need good strong stories."

He added: "If you're struggling and you just get a sense when you're writing that you might be running out of ideas, that's when I think you should walk away."

Series 2 of the show broke records online this year after the BBC posted all episodes on iPlayer after the opener aired on TV.

Within three days of going online, all of the episodes occupied the top four slots of requested programmes on BBC iPlayer and amassed over 2.5 million requests in total.

In addition, following a triumphant return to BBC One with 6.5 million people tuning in to episode one on TV, a further 1.5 million watched on repeat.

You you can catch up on Car Share online here on the BBC iPlayer.
