Sarah Jessica Parker has played down hopes of a SEX AND THE CITY special after the final series has aired - because she wants to maintain the high standards the TV show has set.

The popular American drama is set to end next year (04) after six series, but suggestions that the show could return for a one off special worries Parker, who plays lead character CARRIE BRADSHAW.

She reasons, "There is something odd about that. It all sounds a little sad. 'A very special Sex And The City' - I'm not sure about that.

"I don't know what the future holds. I just know that we have to be the best we can be until we go off the air. I take that extremely seriously. I like the standard the audience have set for us."
