TV: Peter Kay's Car Share, Episode Four, BBC1/iPlayer

I’m not sure whether this should be billed as a preview or a review. At the time of writing the second episode of Peter Kay’s Car Share has not been broadcast, but judging by the Ed Sheeran-style record-breaking success of the four-part series box set on iPlayer I expect a lot of people reading this will have already seen the second episode. And the third and the fourth. I’m still keeping it old school and resisting a binge.

Major spoiler alert. At the start of the second series of Car Share John (Peter Kay) and Kayleigh (Sian Gibson) aren’t even sharing a car. Who says Peter Kay is a comedian who prefers to play safe rather than shake things up?
