Bafta and multi-award winning Gavin and Stacey is set to return for a one-off Christmas special on BBC One. James Corden announced the excitingnews on Twitter.

Posting a picture of a script, Corden said he and co-writer Ruth Jones had been "keeping this secret for a while".

In a statement, Corden and 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."

Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, Rob Brydon, Larry Lamb, Melanie Walters and Alison Steadman have all been confirmed to return.

Gavin and Stacey was originally broadcast over three series on the BBC from 2007-2010.

The series follows Gavin (Mathew Horne), an ordinary boy from Essex in England and Stacey (Joanna Page), an ordinary girl from Barry in Wales, spoke on the phone to each other every day at work, they finally met, fell in love and got married.

The series went onto explore the simple love story of these two young people from different parts of the UK, and the impact their relationship had on their friends and family.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, says: “Everyone at the BBC is hugely excited to be welcoming back Gavin and Stacey to BBC One this Christmas. We can’t wait to see what’s happened to everyone over the last nine years, and what’s next for one of the nation’s favourite comedy families.”
