Over the last 10 years we’ve talked a lot about Gavin and 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.
