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

James Corden, Ruth Jones to Return for "Gavin & Stacey" Christmas Special
by Abid Rahman
May 27, 2019



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.

"Gavin & Stacey" Tops Out at 17.7M Viewers, Making it Britain’s Biggest TV Show Since 2010
by Jake Kanter
January 2, 2020



The BBC pulled off something pretty remarkable on Christmas Day. In an age where traditional television viewing has been blown apart by streaming, the British broadcaster aired the UK’s most-watched TV show since 2010.

For this, it can thank James Corden and his writing partner Ruth Jones, who revived their smash hit comedy "Gavin & Stacey" after nine years to huge success over the festive season.




Some 11.5M people watched "Gavin & Stacey" go out live on BBC One, and with a week’s worth of catchup viewing, its audience has grown to a whopping 17.1M viewers, according to the BBC.

This makes it the biggest non-sport show on British television since the finale of Simon Cowell’s talent contest "The X Factor" in December 2010, which was watched by 17.7M viewers.




"Gavin & Stacey" has also generated 4.4M views in its first week on the BBC’s iPlayer streaming service, meaning the comedy is also making its mark online.

BBC director of content Charlotte Moore said: “Gavin & Stacey has been a phenomenal hit this Christmas breaking records to become the biggest scripted show of the decade.
