We all feel like we've been reunited with an old friend as Cold Feet returns

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!

The main thing viewers were feeling was nostalgic.

Many said watching the show again was like seeing “an old friend” or “getting a hug”.

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.

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.

But hey, the tears were totes worth it.
