Bare cheek: James Nesbitt to repeat history on Cold Feet

Northern Ireland star James Nesbitt will repeat history on hit series Cold Feet - by baring his bum for the camera.

The Coleraine star famously bared all during the show's original run 20 years ago when his character Adam serenaded love Rachel, played by Helen Baxendale, with a rose between his cheeks.

And James will once again reveal his bottom in the name of art in a new scene to be aired later this month.

He joked: "The director seemed very keen for that to happen.

"It was probably something in (creator and writer) Mike Bullen's weird, dark, and - I hope - subconscious mind. There's something cyclical about Adam getting his arse out," the Daily Mirror quoted the 52-year-old actor as saying.

Director Louise Hooper joked: "I thoroughly enjoyed it."

The scene airs in episode four on September 29, this time with Tina, played by Leanne Best.

Cold Feet returned in 2016, with more than six million viewers tuning in to discover what happened to the beloved characters.

It saw Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Fay Ripley, John Thomson and Robert Bathurst now contending with the stress of middle age.

The Manchester-based series originally ran for five series between 1997 and 2003, with more than 10 million tuning in for the emotional finale.
