Gavin And Stacey To Return?
Beloved sitcom Gavin and Stacey is to join the long list of hit sitcoms that return as Christmas Specials.
Co-Writer and star James Corden has revealed he and co-writer Ruth Jones had been “keeping this secret for a while”.
The Bafta-winning sitcom, about a long-distance relationship between a girl from south Wales and an Essex boy, was last screened in the UK in 2010.
The BBC confirmed the announcement, saying it was “hugely excited” to welcome the show back to BBC One.
In a joint statement, Corden and Jones – who also stars in the show – said: “Over the last ten years we’ve talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey – where they might be today and what their lives might look like.
“And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special. We’ve loved revisiting Barry and Essex again, and bringing the characters back together has been a joy. 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.”
At the time of writing there were no announcements on any plans for a new series.
