Ceallach said: “I cannot wait to work with the director, Terry McDonough, all the cast and crew and I am particularly looking forward to working alongside my on-screen Dad James Nesbitt – even if he is a Man United fan.

“I hope I can help make this series every bit as special, entertaining and memorable as the first five series were all those years ago.”

Spellman has previously appeared BBC One’s Waterloo Road and Channel 4’s hit drama Cucumber.

He started presenting CBBC’s Friday Download in 2011 before moving to presenting his own Radio 1 show, The Number 1 Show, last year.

Cold Feet reunites its original stars, James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst, Hermione Norris, John Thomson and Fay Ripley after 14 years. The new series is currently shooting in Manchester to broadcast later this year.
