The Snog is back. Pete McKee’s iconic mural in Sheffield has been reborn on the side of Fagan’s pub in the city centre.

However, Pete’s team were quick to dispell any negativity, confirming The Snog would be back “when the weather is suitable”.

Pete and his team spent the entire day going up and down the building’s wall to bring Frank and Joy back to life.
