Viewers were left dismayed when the second series finished last year with John (Peter Kay) refusing to say how he felt after Kayleigh (Sian Gibson) admitted her true feelings for him.

Fans even set up an online petition demanding a conclusion to the series, which gathered over 100,000 signatures.

And the new and final episode of the hit BBC show appeared to suggest that the pair went off into the sunset together.

The last scenes saw John and Kayleigh listening to music together on a bus after John's car got towed. Kayleigh then rests her head on John's shoulder.

"Oh loved it! So glad they're together. Perfect ending," said one thrilled fan on Twitter.

"CarShare thank you. Grown man crying and chuckling at the same time. Together Forever FM," said another.

Another said: "@Sianygibby @peterkay-co-uk just amazing amazing amazing finale of £carshare, thank you so much for giving us all the ending we wanted."

"Thank you for giving this amazing programme ...And the fabulous Kayleigh and John the ending it should have," said another.

"I'm sure the wedding could be the real finale," suggested one viewer.

Another said: "Now listen. I've already got my wedding outfit ready @Sianygibby @peterkay-co-uk and that's not how I expected it to end! One more series just so I don't have to hunt for the receipt eh?!!"

During a recent discussion about whether there would ever be another instalment, Gibson teased: "Never say never."

However, regardless of whether they do film more episodes, the duo hinted they would be teaming up for another project.

Asked if they would be working together again, Kay said: "Hopefully."

"Definitely," added Gibson.
