Cold Feet is back and we are feeling all warm and fuzzy.
It’s been a long road – the 13 years off, rumours it was coming back, then the announcement that it was really truly happening, and then the fear… Will it be good? Will we be disappointed? Will they change too much?
So breathe a HUGE sign of relief. Episode one has aired and it’s all good!
Can't spot a single negative tweet... So rare. Especially for a show that's returning after 13 years! They've done so well. #ColdFeet— Elliot Gonzalez (@elliot_gonzalez) September 5, 2016
The main thing viewers were feeling was nostalgic.
Many said watching the show again was like seeing “an old friend” or “getting a hug”.
Love the fact that #ColdFeet is back on! Feels like a big hug from an old friend!— Jo Jo (@JoAKABlondie) September 5, 2016
#ColdFeet it's like an old friend who's been away but as soon as you see each other it's like you've never been apart. 😆🌻— Morag (@moggie611) September 5, 2016
Sometimes shows come back and they're not the same but #ColdFeet is still as good as it was 13 years ago 💓— Niamh Burns (@Niamh_Burns) September 5, 2016
But it didn’t just conjure up memories of the first five series, which ran between 1997 and 2003, as it also gave us a fabulous new plot.
The original group – James Nesbitt, John Thomson, Fay Ripley, Robert Bathurst and Hermione Norris – are reunited when Adam (James) returns after years spent working abroad, announcing he is engaged to someone named Angela (Karen David).
But will Angela and Adam last?
Some fans reckon Adam will actually end up with his landlady/neighbour, who has already been given tie-straightening duties.
Will Adam warm his #ColdFeet with the landlady ? 👣👣🙈— Maureen j b (@Maureenbett3) September 5, 2016
Adam is going to end up with the landlady, yes? #ColdFeet— Alex Brown (@alexbrownbooks) September 5, 2016
Oh it's just as good as it was before! 👏🏼 Adam is SO gonna fall for his landlady/neighbour! 🙈 #ColdFeet— Sarah Evans (@sarah_evans74) September 5, 2016
But whether he ends up with Angela or the landlady, it seems fans will still be mourning Adam’s late wife Rachel, who died in a car crash in the last series.
Rachel (Helen Baxendale) was referred to throughout the episode and in one extremely emosh scene, Adam waves and blows a kiss to the house they shared together.
So I quite like Adam's new fiancée. This feels wrong, like I'm betraying Rachel. #ColdFeet— Roz Laws (@rozlaws) September 5, 2016
Oh no, I am getting a real lump on my throat hearing Adam talking about Rachel #ColdFeet— Debra🌻 (@sunflowerdeb16) September 5, 2016
But hey, the tears were totes worth it.
