Chatting on the Drama School Dropout podcast, Susan also revealed her plans for the reboot's storyline. "I would like to pick up the story with two ageing working-class geezers in a pub combating the terrible things that we say about men at the moment. Some men might not understand that the bad guys exist."

She added: "I want to see the comforting story of people like Gaz and Jonny, who live in a world where bad guys don't exist. I want them to acknowledge the bad guys are out there though, but I don't want Gaz and Jonny to be them."
