Gary Lucy says "Footballer's Wives" could return.

The former "Hollyoaks" star revealed there have been talks about bringing back the ITV drama - featuring the lives and loves of professional soccer players - in the near future.

He told the Sun Online: "It was a fantastic time in my life.

"I was 21-years-old, I was living the dream at the time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There has been loads of talk about it but would I go back? I'd absolutely love to revisit that at some point but who knows what the future brings."

The show originally aired on ITV from January 2002 until April 2006 before being axed over low ratings.

Earlier this year Gary was reunited with his "Footballer's Wives" co-star Susie Amy on "Hollyoaks", where she played Scarlett, the secret estranged wife of her pal's character Luke Morgan.

She said: "It's really nice to be working with Gary again.

"We were always very close, though I think with me being on "Hollyoaks" now, every day has been a bit of a flashback for him.

""Footballers Wives" was my first big job and we were so young then, it's something that holds very fond memories for me." "

But the actress admitted the dynamic between Luke and Scarlett was very different to that of their "Footballers Wives" alter egos, Kyle and Chardonnay.

She said: "It's a very different dynamic. Luke and Scarlett are not fond of each other, whereas Kyle and Chardonnay were madly in love."

And she insisted though both her characters seem very glamorous, they're not that similar.

She said: "They honestly haven't tried to do that.

"The only similarity is that I look like both characters, only one of them is much younger."
