The actress, 42, who played Kayleigh in Peter Kay’s Car Share, told this week’s Radio Times she had been glad to see the back of the small red Fiat in which the majority of the series was set. “By the time we’d finished filming, I was sick of the sight of it,” she admitted, saying she wasn’t at all tempted to buy the vehicle after the show ended. “It was also full of crisps and biscuit crumbs, and after filming during the summer, the thing stank so much,” she added, revealing: “I couldn’t wait to get out of it!”

We haven’t got any plans. But never say never…

On the subject of 45-year-old comedian Peter’s hit BBC comedy, which came to an end with its third series last year, Sian refused to shut down the idea of bringing it back in the future.

Asked about the possibility of a Christmas special, she simply said: “We haven’t got any plans. But never say never…”

After Car Share won the National Television Award for Comedy Programme earlier this year, Sian went on to joke about the number of awards she now has.

“I’m not one for having awards on display around the house,” she explained.

“I just carry them around with me all day in a papoose.”

Last year, the actress also scooped the BAFTA Award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme for her role in Car Share.

Sian previously spoke out about her feelings watching the final episode of Car Share, telling the publication she had been “screaming at the telly” despite having co-written it herself.

Opening up about the end of the show, she added: “I will miss all the fun we have filming.

“But I see Peter all the time and we speak nearly every day.”

After winning the NTA in January, she opened up about her friendship with Peter.

Speaking to press including, she said of their chemistry: “It’s just very easy because we’re friends in real life so it just comes really naturally.

“We’re not trying to make chemistry there, it just happens.”

Once again, she hinted at the possibility of the show returning, saying cryptically: “We left it open, maybe? Maybe not…”

The third and final series of Peter Kay’s Car Share aired months after the funny man cancelled all upcoming work commitments, projects and his tour due to “unforeseen family circumstances” at the end of 2017.

At the time, he said in a statement: “This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.”

Having spent time away from the spotlight following the announcement, Peter has started to return to the public eye in recent months, tweeting and giving a couple of interviews.
