Further details

After suffering a few knockbacks, Adam starts to question whether he's lost his mojo until he catches the eye of attractive young barista, Gemma. He's initially cautious, but when she makes the first move and he decides to go for it, Matt's reaction takes him by surprise.

Mature student Jenny's been throwing herself into uni life but all that looks set to change when she receives some unexpected news. Meanwhile, Pete bravely saves a young lad, Evan from drowning but his efforts aren't as appreciated as he might have liked.

Karen's shocked to learn that Josh has dropped out of uni but takes a more understanding stance than draconian dad, David who is adamant Josh needs to finish his course. Josh stands his ground causing David to take stock of his own career path. Is he really still trying to live up to his late father's expectations?

David and Nikki have been living together happily, getting by on minimum wage jobs. But when Nikki's divorce settlement comes through, it's a game changer; suddenly they're back to living the high life but will David be able to cope with being financial dependent on Nikki?

Both Matt and Karen throw Adam some hurtful home truths. Question is, can this leopard really change his spots?

Cold Feet, Series 8, ITV, review - mortality lite

The cast return once more to pull sad faces and silly faces.

Jasper Rees, The Arts Desk, 15th January 2019

Cold Feet review

As ever, Mike Bullen's writing offers an astute understanding of the everyday travails of middle age.

Sarah Hughes, i Newspaper, 15th January 2019

Writer Mike Bullen's Manchester midlife comedy returns with a lively opener that sees both wedding and alarm bells ringing. David and Karen confront parenting problems, Pete turns lifesaver and, best of all, failing lothario Adam gets a lesson in how to embrace his age and why it's OK to go on Tinder.

Mike Bradley, The Guardian, 14th January 2019

Cold Feet: still radiating warmth after all these years

Wedding bells were ringing on Cold Feet (ITV) but for whom? The series opened with an irresistible sequence set at a handsome North Wales wedding venue, teasing us that one of the central characters was getting hitched. Again.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 14th January 2019

Cold Feet beginning to show its age

The old gang are back - again - but the frailties of middle age make for more mordant TV than the mishaps of youth.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 14th January 2019
