While we had provisionally put Peter Kay's Car Share down in the diary for May, it seems it will be coming to our screen A LOT sooner.

Well, that's according to British Comedy Guide, which lists the first episode for April 11 – less than two weeks away!

The new episodes are set to come to BBC One right after they hit iPlayer, though unfortunately we'll only be getting four episodes this series.

The show is set to premiere two of the new episodes as part of Comic Relief this evening (March 31) with a broadcast across 250 Vue Cinemas.

Stars Kay and Sian Gibson will also be asked questions by fans as part of a Q&A, as well as sharing behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes from series one.

"I'm so excited that we're able to premiere some of the new series and raise money for Comic Relief," Kay said. "I really hope people enjoy this very special night."

The show also aired a surprise skit over Christmas.

However, one of the show's writers told Digital Spy last year that the second series could be the last, explaining: "I think beyond a second series, you'd start struggling – actually, what do you do with this scenario?

"Because you've got these confines – there's only so much we can do in that car... unless we start doing stunts in it!"

Peter Kay's Car Share airs on BBC iPlayer and BBC One.
