Meanwhile writer Mike Bullen added, "We feel we've explored to our satisfaction the issues confronting the characters at this stage of their lives and we want to give them all a little time to move on, to put clear water between the stories we've told thus far and the issues they'll be exploring when they are empty nesters staring down the barrel of grandparenthood.

"We're looking forward to returning at a later date to document the agony and the ecstasy of the third age."

Cold Feet series nine concludes tonight at 9pm on ITV.
