Jimmy Nesbitt has been reunited with the cast of the hit television programme that made him a household name.

Fay Ripley, one of the cast of ITV comedy drama Cold Feet, confirmed last November that the much-loved show will make a comeback more than 12 years after it finally bowed out as one of the nation's favourite programmes.

And now Coleraine actor Nesbitt has joined Ripley, Robert Bathurst, John Thomson and Hermione Norris for a read-through of the script ahead of filming. The only person missing from the line-up was Helen Baxendale, whose character Rachel Bradley was killed in a car crash in the original.

The remaining five cast members looked delighted to be together as they posed for photographs. And even though 13 years have passed since the award-winning drama left our screens, the cast looked remarkably fresh-faced in the latest pictures.

Cold Feet centred on the lives of three thirtysomething couples in Manchester and ran for a total of five series between 1998 and 2003.

Nesbitt played the loveable lead, Adam Williams, and the programme followed his romantic adventures with Baxendale's character.

One of his most memorable scenes in the show was when he won her heart by turning up naked with a rose clenched between his buttocks.
