Larry Lamb and Melanie Walters to star in new BBC One drama

Gavin and Stacey stars Larry Lamb and Melanie Walters are to be reunited in a new drama for BBC One.

 Pitching In is about three generations of the same family struggling to make the best of their situation on a caravan park on the North Wales coast.

Also starring Hayley Mills, Caroline Sheen and Ifan Huw Dafydd, it will air in on daytime BBC ONe next year, and  on primetime in Wales.

Lamb played Gavin’s father Michael Shipman and Waters played Stacey’s mother Gwen West in James Corden and Ruth Jones’s acclaimed sitcom.

Lamb said:  ‘Eleven years after Gavin and Stacey burst onto the scene I’m heading out west again, switching Barry Island for Anglesey this time.

‘I’m delighted to be playing the role of Frank in Pitching In - it’s a touching, funny and romantic story and a fascinating glimpse of life on the north Wales coast.’

BBC Cymru Wales' head of commissioning, Nick Andrews says: ‘We all need more "feel good" in our lives and this warm family drama promises to be just that. Pitching In is a comedy drama about family, friendship and community, which will showcase the beauty of north Wales.’
