Shane Meadows wants to do another series of This Is England.

The 47-year-old director - who previously helmed the 2006 film and its TV spin-offs - has revealed he's eager to return to the series with a new instalment, set around the turn of the millennium.

Speaking to Andrew Shim - who played Milky in the series - in his Shimmy's Corona Diaries YouTube series, Meadows shared: "I don't know when but I've got This Is England '00 in my head, the millennium one, because I sort of thought it would be nice, because when did we shoot the last one? Was it 2015, 2016?

"So, you're obviously five years away and I don't massively want to copy the film ideas, but if I went back I'd love to do a millennium one."

Meanwhile, Stephen Graham - who famously played the fearsome Combo in the franchise - has turned his hand to comedy in new Sky One sitcom Code 404, but admitted he wasn't sure if he could pull it off.

Speaking during a special junket from lockdown he revealed: "At first, I was quite nervous, actually.

"I said to Danny [Mays], 'I can't do this mate, I don't really know what to do here'. And he was great with me because he's such a generous actor anyway and a lovely fella. He was like, just do what you do, play it normally… just find the truth in it. I was like, 'Okay'. And then that's when I kind of found my place in it."

Stephen Graham also recently took part in an interview with The Chris Moyles Show and let Pippa show off her best Scouse accent:
