Warning: This article contains spoilers for the end of Car Share series two, which airs tonight (May 2) on BBC One.

Peter Kay has broken all of our hearts by saying that there won't be any more series of Car Share.

The excellent second series finishes tonight (May 2) on BBC One, but the finale has been available on iPlayer since the first episode aired. And for anyone who binged the series, that's your lot.

"There's not going to be a series three so it won't ever happen. You've got to get out while the going's good. No Christmas special, no," Kay told BBC Radio Manchester.

Spoilers for the series two finale follow after the picture.

It'd be a crushing place to end Car Share after the final scene of series two saw Kayleigh (Sian Gibson) finally admit she loved John (Kay), only for him to avoid the question.

"I can't waste any more time John, I don't have time to waste. I'm getting out," she told him. "Out of your car and your life. Because I love you, John, and it kills me you don't feel the same."

And it seems like Kay thought that was a good place to end it as he wants Car Share to go out on a high.

"You're better quitting while you're ahead. There's only so much you can do in a car and the last thing you want to do is ruin it because I think it's a lovely thing," he explained.

"It's been wonderful working with Sian, who's one of my closest friends in the world. We have a good laugh but I think sometimes you've got to just leave things. You need good ideas – that's the problem. You need good strong stories."

Kay concluded: "If you're struggling and you just get a sense when you're writing that you might be running out of ideas, that's when I think you should walk away."

So, no more Car Share, but he didn't rule out making more of his other hit comedy, Phoenix Nights, revealing that a "whole series three has been written for about 15 years".

Peter Kay's Car Share ends tonight (May 2) at 9pm on BBC One.
