Peter Kay’s brilliant sitcom Car Share concluded on Tuesday night, but sadly it wasn’t a happy ending for John and Kayleigh as they didn’t become an item, even after both revealing that they did in fact love one another.
The final episode saw Kayleigh get out of John’s car in a reverse of how the series first began, and leave him to be driving from work on his own. The blonde beauty poured out her heart to supermarket manager, John in a bid to open his eyes to how she felt about him and hopefully take things further, but sadly it wasn’t mean to be.
Kayleigh, frustrated, decides to end proceedings and get out of the car, whilst in heavy traffic and declared: “I just want to be happy, I just can’t do this anymore.
“I can’t waste anymore time, John. I’ve told you, I haven’t got time to waste. I’m going, I’m getting out,” to which John replies, “Getting out where?”, before Kayleigh snaps “Of your car, of your life!”
“Why?” John whimpers, leading Kayleigh to drop the biggest bombshell of the series by barking: “Because I love you, that’s why!”
Sadly it all came too late for John’s emotional message, which he texted to Forever FM to be read out on air, as Kayleigh hailed a stationary Taxi and disappeared into the evening sunshine, all while John explained to his Nan on the phone that “Yeah I’m done” – relating to him finishing work, but also the mark of the episodes conclusion.
The news that broke yesterday, which saw Peter Kay confirm there will be no more episodes of Car Share whatsoever, whether it be in the form of a third series or a one-off special has come as a shock to fans, who are heartbroken that John and Kayleigh didn’t become an item.
There has been a petition set up to entice Kay to produce a third series and fans have personally pleaded with the comic on social media to not walk away and give them a follow up which will see the pair advancing from friendship to much more.
Mortified that there won't be a series 3 of car share! PLEASE peter Kay @peterkay_co_uk reconsider 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 x

Meanwhile, Peter Kay revealed in an interview with BBC Radio Manchester that he may revisit Phoenix Nights in the near future:
He said: “I love Phoenix Nights and I would love to go back. I’ve got a lot of ideas about Phoenix Nights.
“In fact there’s a whole series three been written for about 15 years but so many things get in the way in life like touring and being a father”.
If you have missed any episodes of the current series of Car Share, they are available to view on BBC iPlayer for a limited time.
