Video: Peter Kay's Car Share Unscripted – First Trailer

The BAFTA award winning Car Share returns to BBC One with a special improvised episode. Car Share Unscripted will feature Peter and Sian ad-libbing as John and Kayleigh. The entire show follows them home on their daily commute and features what was filmed whilst driving around with no script.

When the show was announced late last year Peter said: "We were always very fond of ad libbing around the script when we were filming the series so we decided to see what would happen if we took the script away and just relied on just our chemistry alone, reacting to whatever came on the radio."

Peter Kay’s Car Share Unscripted, Monday 7th May, 10pm on BBC One. The final episode will air on May 28. 

Here's a short Q&A with the stars:

What was the idea behind the Unscripted episode?

Peter: I think it’s always good to try and do something original and I couldn’t think of any other narrative comedies that have ever made a fully improvised episode. As Sian and myself often ad lib when filming we thought we’d give it a go for an entire episode

So you really didn’t have a script?

Sian: Really. Nothing at all!

Peter: We just reacted to whatever came on the radio and just went with it, good or bad. We hope people like it 

Peter you recently screened Unscripted and the Finale in Blackpool, how did you feel about the audience reaction?

Peter: It’s absolutely wonderful hearing an audience react to what you’ve been so hard working on for so long. We’d screened both series there in previous years and it’s really rewarding, plus you get to raise a bit for charity too.

Sian was it difficult not to burst into laughter whilst filming Unscripted?

Sian: We were always laughing, and nearly all of the laughter you see in Car Share is completely genuine. Peter knows how to make me laugh with just a look - so he constantly makes me giggle.

Peter: You’re just as bad

Sian: I’m not!!

Peter: She is

Sian: It’s because we find the same things funny
