A new novel based on Cold Feet is to be published.

Cold Feet: The Lost Years will tell the stories of the hit television series' characters in the 13-year period between the original run ending in 2003 and the programme's 2016 revival.

The novel will be published in e-book and hardback formats on Tuesday 5th September 2017, coinciding with the ITV comedy drama's return for a seventh series.

The publisher, Hodder & Stoughton, say: "In Autumn 2017 the show comes back for a seventh series, and alongside it we will publish an original Cold Feet novel, Cold Feet: The Lost Years, written by award-winning author Carmel Harrington in collaboration with the show's creator, Mike Bullen.

"This original novel is set between the old and new series, filling in the gaps, bringing us even closer to the characters we've laughed, grieved and grown up with. It's the missing piece of the puzzle that the show's millions of fans have been waiting for."

Series creator and writer Mike Bullen says: "I'm delighted that a writer of the calibre of Carmel Harrington is taking on the challenge of joining the dots between the original Cold Feet and its recent incarnation. Like other fans of the show, I'm excited to catch up with the characters' lives in the intervening years."

Harrington said: "I've been a die-hard fan of Cold Feet from that first electric pilot episode in 1997. It's a joy to write further adventures for these beloved characters, created by the incredible Mike Bullen. I'm honoured and excited to work with the teams at Hodder and ITV."

A complete Series 1 - 6 DVD box set is already available, for those wishing to catch up on the characters' television escapades to date.
