Fans hoping for more Kath and Kim are out of luck for the time being, according to ‘Kel Knight’ himself, Glenn Robbins.
“I know the girls have full lives. If there was any inkling of an idea they’d ring me pretty early on,” he recently told TV Tonight.
“In the longer term, who knows, but in the shorter term, no.”
The much-loved characters last made a major screen appearance in 2012’s feature Kath & Kimderella.
Robbins, currently appearing in Upper Middle Bogan, says he see the girls about once a year, such as at an opening nights.
“If they were to come ringing I’d be more than happy to talk about it, but I’m sure they are asking the question ‘Have we told all the stories we can tell?’” he suggested.
As to chatter about a stage version of the show, he noted, “There were rumblings of that, but there are no secret backroom talks that I know of.”
But Robbins, who first appeared as Fountain Lakes’ metrosexual butcher in 2002, has nothing but praise for Jane Turner, Gina Riley and Magda Szubanski.
“It doesn’t get any better than that. I’ll stand in the hallway of that house, as Kel, just listening to those girls firing on all cylinders. And deep down inside I’m thinking ‘What a joy this is.’ ‘
“I don’t need to do anything, I just let it play. They are sublime on every level.”
