It’s been over a decade since James Nesbitt, Faye Ripley and co last graced our screens as part of ITV’s landmark show Cold Feet, but their return last night was warmly received by critics and fans alike – many of whom likened the show’s return as akin to “slipping on a comfy pair of slippers.”

One familiar face that was noticeably absent however, was that of Helen Baxendale, whose character Rachel died in a car accident at the end of the last season, thirteen years ago.
