It’s official – Gavin and Stacey are back. James Corden (Smithy, co-creator) dropped the bombshell on Twitter this morning, revealing that he and Ruth Jones (Nessa, co-creator) had joined forces once again to return to Barry and Billericay ten years after the series ended.
In a joint statement, they said “”Over the last 10 years we’ve talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey – where they might be today and what their lives might look like … We’re so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas.”
It’s been confirmed that the leading cast will all return for the one-off, hour long episode, due to air on the BBC on Christmas Day 2019. The show’s previous Christmas special is consistently voted as one of Britain’s favourite festive comedies, and with fan expectations skyrocketing, this special will have big shoes to fill.
