James Corden says Gavin & Stacey WILL be back!
Gavin & Stacey fans! Let joy be unconfined because James Corden – who of course co-wrote and starred in the show with Ruth Jones who has subsquently gone on to write and star in Sky sitcom Stella – has announced that the hit comedy WILL be back!
Speaking to TV Biz, James said, “It would be a crime not to [bring Gavin & Stacey back]; it’s a great show.”
He added, “Writing with Ruth is a gift, I definitely plan on doing some more.”
James of course played Smithy in the award-winning BBC series, which ended in 2010.
As fans of the show will of course recall, in the final episode, Smithy appeared to have finally got together with Nessa, who was played by Ruth.
When the series ended, 14,000 people signed an online petition calling for its return, but until now, despite much speculation that the show would – and equally, would not – make a comeback, we haven’t heard the news directly from the horse’s mouth…
I’m just really hoping the Sun has it right! Would you be excited to see Gavin & Stacey back?
Here’s a reminder of just how utterly brilliant the show was/is…
