Gavin And Stacey will return for its final ever episode this Christmas on BBC One. The Sun have now revealed the BBC have commissioned a one-off documentary to mark the ending of the series.

The special programme, which will also air over the festive period on BBC One, will go behind-the-scenes on production of the Christmas episode, follow the cast and crew, as well as interviews with the stars and reliving some of their favourite moment from previous episodes.

A source told The Sun: "The Beeb view this as a momentous occasion and wanted to give Gavin & Stacey a suitably auspicious send-off. The fact that the documentary will be made by Fulwell 73, which is co-owned by James and is a co-producer of the sitcom, means they’ll enjoy full access on set and get all the biggest chats."

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 over 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."

Previous episodes of Gavin & Stacey are available on BBC iPlayer.
