THE creator of the iconic Scottish TV series Bob Servant has sparked speculation among fans that a series reboot or special could be on the cards after a cryptic post on social media.

Neil Forsyth, who is also known as the creator of thriller series Guilt, shared an image alongside the show’s two stars: Brian Cox and Jonathan Watson.

Cox played the eponymous Bob Servant in the famed 2013 series, which saw his character run as an independent in a by-election for the fictional Westminster constituency of Broughty Ferry. Watson played his right-hand man Frank.

Servant made his money in the infamous “cheeseburger wars” – a running joke in the show which Forsyth appeared to reference in his cryptic post.

Sharing an image of himself between Cox and Watson, the series creator simply posted a burger emoji.

Fans of the show took the post as a hint at a possible return to TV screens for Servant.

“Please. We need this,” one user wrote, while another added: “Announce a new series please……”

“This pic a thing of beauty! Business or pleasure?” a third asked.

“The My Two Dads reboot is on, YESSS! ...or more Bob Servant… whatever, both good!” another user joked.

And another said: “Please say this is related to a Bob Servant special.”

Servant has his own presence on Twitter in the form of a popular satirical account under his name. It has more than 125,000 followers.

The bio for Servant’s account states: “I own (outright) a cheeseburger van in Broughty Ferry, Dundee, Scotland. I don't sell cheeseburgers, I sell dreams. Genuine legend.”

It also shared the image of Forsyth with the two actors, stoking further speculation.

“If ever there was a time in history for Bob to return and lead us to the promised land, it is now. The van is ready to meet its moment. Climate change. Cost of living crisis. Onions. Bob has the answer. Please make this happen,” one person responded.

Bob Servant ran for just nine episodes in 2013 and 2014. In 2020, it was ranked as the second greatest Scottish TV of all time behind only Still Game.
