Gavin & Stacey preview

Brief clip from forthcoming Christmas special

The BBC has released a short preview clip of the Christmas Gavin and Stacey special – the first new episode in a decade.

It shows Rob Brydon as Uncle Bryn struggling to cook Christmas dinner, even radioing for help. And there's a brief glimpse of co-creator Ruth Jones as Nessa and Joanna Page as Stacey.

The show will air on BBC One on Christmas Day.
