Gavin and Stacey star Rob Brydon hints at another special

Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special 2019

Gavin and Stacey could be back for another special, show star Rob Brydon has hinted.

Christmas Day 2019 saw a one-off special of the hit BBC sitcom 10 years after it last aired.


The episode, which peaked at 12.3 million viewers, ended on a cliff hanger as Ruth Jones' Nessa character proposed to Smithy, played by James Corden.

While Gavin & Stacey didn't return for 2020, Rob Brydon says "it would seem so strange" for there not to be another instalment soon.

The actor, who plays Bryn West in the comedy, said on his podcast Brydon & with co-star Sheridan Smith: "Well, I think they might do one more special. But they should crack on if they are going to do it."

Sheridan replied: "They created this masterpiece sort of one-off Christmas special.

"Now everyone's asking for more, aren't they?"

Sheridan, who played Smithy's brother Ruth "Rudi" Smith, continued: "What a cast and everyone was so lovely; the crew, everyone, was brilliant on that job.


"They wrote it so well and so to just be a small part of it was an honour."

Although nothing has been announced yet, the BBC also recently teased the show's potential return.

Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore told the BBC News of Gavin and Stacey's return: "That wasn't something that was going to happen this year [2020]," before adding: "One day."

Fans of the sitcom previously begged for a fourth season after the Christmas special.

Following the one-off special, writer and star of the show Ruth Jones wouldn't rule out more new episodes of the show.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I do say never say never, as while we did make it work that was after three years of trying to find time when we could sit down and write it.

"Obviously with the way it ends, there is room for more. It’s a shame we didn’t have more time when we were writing so we could have written more, then have it all ready to go."

For now, watch this space.
