The special will airing this Christmas. Further details will be announced in due course.

The most recent episode of Gavin & Stacey, which is written and created by Ruth Jones and James Corden, aired on Christmas Day 2018 and was watched by oer 18.5 million people, including 5 million 16-34 year olds.

At the time, this made it the biggest single episode of any comedy programme across all channels since current records began in 2002. All previous series and episodes of Gavin & Stacey are available to stream on iPlayer now.

The synopsis for the 2018 special was: "This year we’re off to Wales for the festivities, where Bryn is cooking dinner for 13 people. Understandably he’s tense. Pam would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen’s house a bit lacking, but the deal has always been that they alternate every year, and this time it’s the turn of the Wests to host Christmas with everyone under one small roof.

For Gavin and Stacey, parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their ‘baby’ now being ten. Smithy, too, continues to commit to his fatherly role, making the journey to Barry at weekends and every second Wednesday to see 12 year-old Neil the Baby.

Nessa on the other hand adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering, whilst Pam, Mick and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents. On Christmas Eve, Dawn makes a shocking discovery about Pete that jeopardizes their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye opener in more ways than one."

Gavin & Stacey is written and created by Ruth Jones and James Corden. Previous
