Will Mellor kicks back with two pints of lager and a packet of crisps

Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps please! Strictly’s Will Mellor makes playful nod to the BBC sitcom which made him a household name during night out

Will Mellor playfully posed with two pints of lager and a packet of crisps on a recent night out making a playful reference to the BBC sitcom of the same name he starred in.

The Strictly contestant, 46, stepped outside of his hotel on Thursday night following nine hours of dance rehearsals for Saturday night’s show with professional partner, Nancy Xu.

The actor looked in his element with a pint in each hand and crisps locked between his teeth as he playfully referenced his decade long sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps which he starred in as Gaz Wilkinson.

Will looked at ease in his smart casual attire as he swapped the fake tan and glitter of the Strictly Ballroom for a white T-shirt, blue jeans and spotless Nike Air trainers. 

Will could easily have been mistaken for his Two Pints character, Gaz as he juggled two full pint glasses while catching a breath of fresh air.

The decade long sitcom show shot Will to fame in 2001 along with co-star, Sheridan Smith as it followed the lives of five friends in the Northern town of Runcorn.

This year has seen the television star swap Runcorn for Elstree studios as Will signed up for Strictly Come Dancing. 

Will has been a popular figure on the weekly dance competition as his electric hips have wowed the nation and left judge Motsi Mabuse ‘speechless.’

Last Saturday saw the former Coronation Street actor top the leaderboard at the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom as Will and Nancy’s Samba earned them a combined judges score of 35.

Earlier in November, Will revealed he broke down during one of his dance routines as he danced to his late dad’s favourite song. 

Speaking on Loose Women the actor admitted: ‘I couldn’t get through routine without crying.’ The Strictly star lost his father, Bill in 2020 just two weeks after he had been diagnosed with cancer.

Will stated: ‘He’s one of reasons I’m doing Strictly. I want to embrace life and go for it.’
