Corden and Jones have recently released a statement confirming its one-off return: “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,” they said. “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. Thank you BBC for helping to make this happen.”
