TV "Gavin & Stacey" Cast to Reunite for Christmas Special

James Corden, Ruth Jones to Return for "Gavin & Stacey" Christmas Special

After a decade-long gap, "Gavin & Stacey" is returning for a one-off Christmas special, the BBC has announced.

James Corden, who along with Ruth Jones co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in the hit comedy show, revealed the news on his Twitter account Monday night.

Mathew Horne and Joanna Page, who played the titular Gavin and Stacey, as well as other major characters played by Rob Brydon, Larry Lamb, Melanie Walters and Alison Steadman, will all reprise their roles for the special, which will air later this year.

In a press release, Corden said: “Over the last ten years we’ve talked a lot about Gavin & 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. Thank you BBC for helping to make this happen.
