James Nesbitt

Award-winning Northern Irish actor James Nesbitt, 52, plays Adam Williams in the comedy-drama.

Adam is a lonely womaniser, permanently damaged in series five when his wife Rachel dies in a car crash.

When seducing Rachel, Adam placed a rose between his bum cheeks which became one of the drama’s best-known scenes.

He also was diagnosed with testicular cancer, before he and Rachel had a son called Matthew – despite the mum thinking she was infertile.

At the end of the last series, widower Adam got together with his former landlady Tina.

Since Cold Feet propelled him into the spotlight, James has enjoyed a hugely varied career in TV and film.

Actress Hermione, 50, originally auditioned for another role but was cast as posh Karen Marsden because of her social class.

It was her break-out part but she’s since had a very successful career through shows like Wire In The Blood, Spooks, Kingdom and In The Club.

The character of Karen is strong-willed and wore the trousers in her marriage with David, until it collapsed due to their mutual infidelity.

Before Cold Feet, John was already well-known for his work in The Fast Show, 24 Hour Party People and Men Behaving Badly.

His role as taxi driver Pete saw him nominated for Best TV Comedy Actor in 2001 at the British Comedy Awards.

Since Cold Feet’s original run John has appeared in Casualty, Waterloo Road and After Hours, plus the movie Grimsby.

In the most recent series he was imprisoned on false fraud charges before announcing he wanted to get back together with Karen.
