There won't be a new Christmas special of Gavin & Stacey this year - but last year's episode will be repeated.

You'll be able to re-watch the one-off again on Christmas Eve (Thursday 24 December) at 8:40PM on BBC One.

As for a new series or special, Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore recently told the BBC News of Gavin and Stacey's potential return: "That wasn't something that was going to happen this year," before adding: "One day."

As for when that "one day" will be, don't expect it soon.

Ruth Jones, who co-wrote the series and starred as Nessa, recently told This Morning that there were currently no plans to write any new episodes.

She told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "There aren't any plans to write anything.

"Obviously James [Corden] is in America and I'm in Wales. The joy of our last special is that if we never go back to Barry, we'll always wonder what happened next."

She added: "I quite like leaving it hanging. I'm sorry I don't have any better news."

Last year's Christmas special aired to a huge audience of more than 12 million viewers.

Returning 10 years after the previous episode had last aired, the one-off ended on a cliff hanger as Nessa proposed to Smithy, played by James Corden.

For now you can watch all past episodes of Gavin & Stacey via BBC iPlayer.
