James Corden says it ‘would be a shame’ not to do more Gavin and Stacey after the Christmas special (Picture: BBC)
James Corden has hinted that there could be more Gavin and Stacey after the 2019 Christmas special, saying the final scene of Nessa (Ruth Jones) proposing to his character Smithy ‘didn’t feel like the end of a book but the end of a chapter’.
The hit comedy, about the relationship between a woman from Barry in Wales and a man from Billericay, Essex, and their families, originally ran from 2007 to 2010 before it was brought back nine years later.
The talk show host feels it would be a ‘shame’ not to make more episodes with writing partner Ruth – although they have ‘not had a single conversation’ about doing it.
He told Zoe Ball on Radio 2: ‘As it stands there aren’t any plans to do more, but that’s not to say that the inclination isn’t there.
‘When we wrote that last special we never thought whether we’d make another, but that special ends on such a…it ends so open I think it would be a shame to leave it there.
‘That’s certainly my feeling and I think Ruth feels the same. It doesn’t feel like the end of a book but the end of a chapter. If we did another that would be the end of it.’

He went on: ‘That’s why we wrote it without telling anyone, we didn’t want to make anything that would let any body down.
‘My hunch is no one will ever know if it’s coming until we’ve got it but we haven’t had a single conversation about it. You’ve got to organically wait for the ideas to arrive.’
The Prom star also gave some insight into his and Ruth’s creative process, revealing: ‘We also can’t write separately, we’re terrible at it. They’re part writing sessions and part therapy.
‘We open a portal. There’s these characters in Barry and we’re the ones lucky enough to write it down.’
