Gavin & Stacey is coming back for one last episode. Creators, writers and stars James Corden and Ruth Jones have confirmed the BBC comedy will return for a finale this Christmas, five years after the series last aired.

The pair took to Instagram to announce the festive special: “Some news… It’s official!!! We have finished writing the last ever episode of Gavin & Stacey. See you on Christmas Day, BBC One. Love Ruth and James.”

Following the relationship between Gavin, from Billericay in Essex, and Stacey, from the Welsh town of Barry, and their families, the series stars Matthew Horne as Gavin and Joanna Page as Stacey, with Larry Lamb, Alison Steadman, Rob Brydon and Melanie Walters.

Corden plays Gavin’s best friend Smithy, while Jones is Stacey’s oldest friend Nessa.

Produced by Baby Cow, Gavin & Stacey debuted in 2007 and ran for three seasons until 2010, with Christmas specials in 2008 and 2019.

The finale will air on Christmas Day on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
