I really cannot believe that the last series of Gavin and Stacey finished some nine years ago! News broke this week that the award winning comedy is to make a one-off come back special for Christmas later this year.
James Cordon announced the news on twitter…
Script writers James Corden and Ruth Jones (who play Smithy and Nessa respectively) will be joined by other cast regulars Matthew Horne (Gavin), Joanna Page (Stacey), Rob Brydon (Uncle Bryn), Alison Steadman (Stacey’s mum), Larry Lamb and Melanie Walters (Gavin’s parents).
The show is set in Barry, South Wales (Stacey’s home town) and Billericay, Essex where Gavin is from and, over three series the relationship between the two was explored mainly through work telephone calls, with various meetings and eventually culminating in their marriage and ended with them expecting their first child. This new one-off will explore the characters a decade on.
I for one cannot wait to see what has been occurring!
