What is Cold Feet, what is it about and who is in it?

Cold Feet is a comedy-drama series about a group of British couples living in Manchester, which began airing in a one-hour format on ITV in 1997, a whopping 20 years ago.

The original run featured five series and ended in 2003, but it came back last year.

Almost all of the main cast members returned – James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, Faye Ripley and Robert Bathurst.

Helen Baxendale – also known for playing Ross’s girlfriend Emily in Friends – chose not to return, which is just as well as her character Rachel is technically dead.

In August 2017 it was revealed that Benidorm and The Loch actress Siobhan Finneran is joining the cast as Cheshire housewife Nikki Kirkbright.

The soap-like show follows the divorces, affairs, parenting and personal problems of six people involved in three couples who happen to be friends.

It’s written by screenwriter Mike Bullen and it’s won over 20 top awards, mostly in comedy categories.
