Peter Kay’s BBC comedy Car Share gets new iPlayer release date & episode synopsis

Liftshare was in Blackpool two weeks ago to watch the premiere of all six episodes of Peter Kay’s new BBC comedy Car Share.

We found it to be a fun, touching series that looks into the bond between two supermarket staff as they commute to work every day. Throughout the series colleagues John and Kay become great friends, and start to really understand who they are away from work. It echoes the very real stories of Liftshare members becoming friends as they travel, which is something we love to see!

You can find out more about the series in our Peter Kay Car Share review.

We had previously reported a launch date for the series as April 4 on BBC iPlayer, but the broadcaster has now pushed back the six-episode run a little. Now, all six episodes will appear on the streaming service between April 24-28, before heading to BBC One in due course.

The BBC has also sent us a full episode synopsis guide for each show:

  • Episode 1
    When a supermarket issues a new car share scheme assistant manager John Redmond and promotions rep Kayleigh Kitson are forced to commute together every day. But will they get along?
  • Episode 2
