If you’re going to bring back an iconic TV show, now is definitely the season to do it, with reunions and reboots kicking off left, right and centre; so we’re just hoping the rumours about a Footballer’s Wives comeback are true.
The ITV melodrama which centered around a team of premier league footballers, their viciously ambitious wives, and the skeletons in their closets, left our screens twelve years ago, but is it time to revive Britain’s trashiest bitchfest?
Zoe Lucker and Laila Rouass hinted at a potential reboot when discussing the iconic show on Loose Women this week. Rouass – who played Amber – said:
“We had a really good time, it was very, very glamorous […] I do [miss it] sometimes. I think I would [go back].”
Lucker agreed, saying: “If it was as good as it was when we were in it, yes.”
Well, we can’t guarantee that, but give it ago, will ye?
It’s definitely what the fans want:
Netflix really need to invest in bringing Footballer’s Wives back. Trashy tv at its finest

Gary Lucy teased fans when Now magazine asked about the show’s return last year: “Maybe in some form… watch this space is all I can say.
“It was an outrageous and fantastic thing to be a part of, so a reunion may be on the cards, you’ll have to wait and see.”
Outrageous it was; we miss seeing Tanya Turner (Zoe Lucker) snort a lunchtime time, and then stare intensely out of the nearest window plotting how to kill her husband while dragging on a Malboro Light. Or Conrad (Ben Price) getting his cock out in the locker room before slinking off for his secret interracial gay affair. Or just any of the cast breaking out into a totally unnecessary yet violent catfight over who earns more money.
And the show was left on a cliffhanger too, so fans actually want to know what happened to the characters. Though to be fair, if we talk about it enough, producers will see dollar signs and get to work. So be sure to share this article with your Footballer’s Wives fan-friends!
