LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX has returned to BBC One after almost four years and fans have been excited to watch the new series. The show follows the blossoming relationship between pensioners Alan and Celia.

Last Tango in Halifax on BBC One stars Anne Reid as Celia and Derek Jacobi as her husband Alan. The couple got married in their seventies after rekindling their love and meeting on Facebook. But fans are wondering if they stay together following a couple of spats between the characters, and the main cast members spoke exclusively to the media, including Express.co.uk, about their relationship.


In the first episode of the new series we saw Celia and Alan move into their own bungalow with a stunning view of the countryside.

Their relationship seems picture perfect on the outside but the couple start to have petty rows from the first episode.

Alan is keen to keep busy in his retirement and goes for an interview at the local supermarket - something Celia is firmly against.

Celia also falls out with Alan over his daughter Gillian (played by Nicola Walker) and her financial situation after she asks her dad for money.

Their bickering had fans worried they may decide to call it quits on their marriage after many years.

Anne Reid, who plays Celia, said she was thrilled to be back for another series and she spoke about her relationship with Alan.

She said: “Celia is a right grumpy bugger. If Celia suddenly turned terribly sweet I wouldn’t like that.

“I find you get more laughs if you are unpleasant. She has delusions of grandeur she wants a husband who works in an office.”

Reid, who has starred in Coronation Street and Dinnerladies, said she liked the fact her on-screen husband was seeing her true colours.
