Peter Kay's Car Share Unscripted special was the sing-along TV event of the year

Normally the evening on a Bank Holiday Monday is gloomy, as we all face the realities of heading back to the daily grind the following morning. But not when Peter Kay’s Car Share is on screens!

The comedian and his co-star Sian Gibson are back for two special episodes, one of which will pick up where last year’s left off with John (Kay) desperately trying to win back Kayleigh (Gibson).

That episode will be airing soon, but fans on Monday (May 7) got an extra special treat as Kay and Gibson reunited to sing along to the classic hits on Forever FM in an unscripted format.

Monday’s special doesn’t really fit into the continuity of John and Kayleigh’s love story — it was more an opportunity for real-life friends Peter and Sian to crack each other up while chatting about everything from Chicken Kiev, dogs randomly pooping on the sidewalk and decapitation. Let’s just say the comedy was cracking!

“It’s the Four Tops! Guess where they are?” John asked at one point, with Kayleigh guessing: “Dead?”

“No,” John cringed. “They’re loco, down in Acapulco!”

Cue ‘Loco in Acapulco’! Needless to say, fans of Car Share had a blast singing along with the duo on their unscripted journey (warning: NSFW tweets below):

The episode did have a low point, though. It was revealed that John hasn’t ever seen Top Gun, while Kayleigh has never watched a James Bond film!

Earlier this month, Peter Kay explained why he wanted to make this unscripted episode in addition to a proper finale to wrap up the story of John and Kayleigh.

“I think it’s always good to try and do something original and I couldn’t think of any other narrative comedies that have ever made a fully improvised episode,” he said.

“As Sian and myself often ad lib when filming, we thought we’d give it a go for an entire episode.”

The comedian added: “We were always very fond of ad libbing around the script when we were filming the series, so we decided to see what would happen if we took the script away and just relied on just our chemistry alone, reacting to whatever came on the radio.”

Peter Kay’s Car Share‘s finale will be coming soon on BBC One.
