After months of speculation, Kim Cattrall says that there will be a sequel to this year’s hugely popular Sex and the City: The Movie.

The actress appeared on Britain’s The Paul O’Grady Show, with guest-host Spice Girl Melanie Brown.

Asked point blank, “Will there be a sequel?” Cattrall replied emphatically, “Yes there will!”

A spokesperson for New Line Cinema says the studio is “in negotiations for a sequel.”

Cattrall, 52, talked more about sequel plans at Cosmopolitan‘s Ultimate Women of the Year Awards in London, where she received the “Ultimate Icon” honor. “The fans keep saying, ‘Yes, one more,'” Cattrall told reporters. “The movie was so much fun to do and be part of again. I hope we’re going to do it again.”

She’s especially looking forward to getting the script. “Samantha single is more fun that you can ever imagine,” she said.

But personally, Cattrall said she’s more similar to the contemplative Carrie. She sees a little bit of herself in all the characters – except one, she told PEOPLE at the event. “I never was a Charlotte. I can have a morning like Carrie, and I can have an afternoon like Miranda and I always hope for an evening like Samantha!”

Mirroring her man-crazy character’s relationship with a much younger man – Smith Jared (played by Jason Lewis) – Cattrall has been dating Canadian chef Alan Wyse, two decades her junior. She said he has only seen bits and pieces of Sex and the City.

“I remember someone coming up to him very early on in our relationship and saying, ‘Oh you’re the real life Smith Jared,'” Cattrall told PEOPLE. “And he said, ‘Who the hell is that?’ He has a great sense of humor about it.”
