Gavin & Stacey revival mooted... again

Ruth Jones suggests film or TV special

Ruth Jones has again revived the possibility of more Gavin & Stacey.

The co-creator of the hit comedy hinted that a film or one-off TV special may be in the pipeline.

In an interview with Radio Times to coincide with the return of her Sky 1 series Stella, she found she could not ignore the programme that made her name.

Jones - who also plays Nessa in the show - said she would ‘definitely’ reunite with co-creator James Corden again.

‘We haven't any concrete plans but we will at some stage,’ she said. ‘It might be a Gavin & Stacey special or it might be a film.’

Gavin & Stacey came to an end in 2010 after three series and a Christmas special. It was remade in the US using the title Us & Them, but it was cancelled midseason by Fox, so only six of the planned 13 episodes will now air.

Last year, co-star Mathew Horne said that a new Gavin & Stacey series would be ‘fab’.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
