Dave Spikey has admitted his disappointment that Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness "rode away into the sunset" rather than make a third series of "Phoenix Nights".
The 67-year-old comedian portrayed Jerry St.Clair in the Channel 4 sitcom, and has admitted there "should have" been another season of the programme because the ideas were in place, but Peter and Paddy, who played bouncers Max and Paddy respectively, went on to make spin-off "Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere".
He wrote on Twitter: "You can never go back. Should have done a third series and a Christmas special. The ideas and storylines were there
"Series 3 was never written although the ideas were there. Max and Paddy rode away into the sunset and sadly that was the end of that (sic)"
Following his tweets, Dave received several messages from fans asking if a third series could ever happen, but insisted it is a "lost cause".
He tweeted: "Lost cause I'm afraid (sic)"
Dave also liked a tweet from one fan who suggested he is "better" on his own.
The message read: "You're better on your own Dave , still not been able to get over to see you , you'll have to come to Jersey next tour (sic)"
"Phoenix Nights" aired for two series from 2001 to 2002 and told the story of the goings-on in a working men's club in Bolton, and largely centred on Brian Potter's (Peter) ambition to make the club the most popular in the Greater Manchester town.
