John Redmond is back in the driving seat as Peter Kay’s Car Share returned last night – and viewers didn’t realise quite how much they’d missed the supermarket assistant manager and his passenger Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson).
I've missed Peter Kay's Car Share ????

Smells like Sugar Puffs ?? Probably the best episode of Car Share. Crying with laughter.

The signboards did not disappoint, with some great puns passing by outside the car windows.

And… is that Guy Garvey? Yup, the lead singer of Elbow had an unexpected cameo as Steve the home mechanic, tinkering away at his bike.

Guy Garvey! Who knew? Perfect programme: happier at the end of it than at the beginning. #carshare

That may not be the only cameo, though. One viewer is convinced he spotted Helen Mirren in a phone box, and he has the screenshot to prove it.

The only problem viewers had was John’s frequent use of his mobile phone while driving. Don’t you know that’s against the law, John? Tut tut.

If Peter Kay were in County Durham he’d have been pulled over at least three times by the cops for holding his phone while driving #carshare
