BBC rules out Gavin and Stacey return this Christmas

BBC rules out Gavin and Stacey return this Christmas
The BBC says that another new episode of Gavin and Stacey is not on the cards for this Christmas.

The BBC's chief content officer Charlotte Moore has quashed speculation that Gavin and Stacey could be back for a surprise Christmas special this year.

The comedy returned last Christmas for a new episode, some 10 years on from the last series, and ended up pulling in a phenomenal 18.5 million viewers.

Over the weekend show stars Mat Horne and Joanna Page were spotted together at a bar in Cardiff, sparking rumours that a secret new episode could be in the works as a surprise for the end of 2020.

Asked about the rumours at the BBC's Christmas 2020 press launch, Moore replied: "That wasn't something that was going to happen this year. One day."

Co-creator Ruth Jones has previously insisted that she and James Corden have made no progress on a new episode this year.
