After a nine year wait, Gavin and Stacey will return to our screens for a one-off special on Christmas Day.

The hour-long episode of the hit sitcom is one of the most anticipated TV episodes of the year.

Gavin and Stacey originally ran for three series on BBC from May 2007 until January 2010.

The upcoming Christmas special was announced by James Corden back in May, much to the delight of fans.

In a statement, Corden and Ruth Jones - who play Smithy and Nessa - said:

"Over the last ten years we've talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey - where they might be today and what their lives might look like.

"And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special.

"We've loved revisiting Barry and Essex again, and bringing the characters back together has been a joy.

"We're so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas."

Trailer

The clip opens with Smithy (James Corden) arriving at the Shipman household to visit Gavin (Matthew Horne), Pam (Alison Steadman) and Mick (Larry Lamb).

The group then break into a rendition of Elton John's 'Step Into Christmas'.

Co-creator Ruth Jones reprises her role as Nessa and delivers her famous catchphrase: "What's occuring?"

We then see Uncle Bryn (Rob Brydon) make a mess of the Christmas dinner.

What Can We Expect?

The official synopsis reads:

"It’s been ten years since we last went to Billericay to spend Christmas with the Shipmans and the Wests. This year we’re off to Wales for the festivities, where Bryn’s cooking dinner for over thirteen 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."

It continues:

"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 twelve-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 jeopardises their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye-opener in more ways than one."

Meanwhile, Larry Lamb (Mick) previously revealed that the scrip made him cry:

When Does It Air?

The Gavin and Stacey Christmas special airs on BBC One on Christmas Day at 8.30pm.

Hopefully we'll find out what happens on that fishing trip!
