Katherine Jenkins Christmas Spectacular concert to air on ITV

After its special last Christmas, there's been lots of questions about Gavin and Stacey returning for 2020. The BBC has now confirmed its Christmas line up with its full schedule over the festive period revealed. Advertisements There won't be a 2020 Christmas special of Gavin & Stacey But last year's episode will be repeated, airing again on Christmas Eve (Thursday 24 December) at 8:40PM on BBC One. Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore 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. Advertisements 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.
