Last Christmas, 17 million people tuned in to watch the long-awaited Gavin & Stacey Christmas special and see how our favourite Barry and Billericay families were getting on.
And after that epic cliffhanger, many people were expecting that we’d be getting another helping of festive cheer this year.
But unfortunately, there is no new Gavin & Stacey Christmas special this year.
While stars Mathew Horne, Joanna Page and Larry Lamb have suggested there will be another special in the future, we won’t be seeing how the Shipman and West families handled 2020.
However, the 2019 Christmas special will be aired again on Christmas Eve at 8.40pm on BBC One.
There will be a slight change to the broadcast, as the use of the word ‘f****t’ in Bryn and Nessa’s performance of Fairytale Of New York has been removed.
In addition, the 2008 Christmas special – where the families spend Christmas in Essex – is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
Last year, after nearly 10 years away, Gavin & Stacey returned to reveal that Gavin (Horne) and Stacey (Page) now have three children and are living in Doris’s old house in Barry, with Stacey keen to revive the spark in their marriage.
Meanwhile, Nessa (Ruth Jones) and Smithy (James Corden) have been co-parenting Neil the baby and have been sleeping together regularly, but a spanner is thrown in the works when Smithy reveals his plans to propose to new girlfriend Sonia.
The episode ended with a massive cliffhanger, with Nessa proposing to Smithy and the show cutting to credits without us knowing his answer.
While we’re not getting a special just yet, Mathew Horne and Joanna Page will be reuniting on Christmas Day for a radio special.
The pair will be joined by some ‘special friends’ on BBC Radio Wales, with the show starting from 2pm.
Among the guests will be Melanie Walters (Gwen), Alison Steadman (Pam), Larry Lamb (Mick), Steffan Rhodri (Dave Coaches), Robert Wilfort (Jason) and Laura Aikman (Sonia).
Gavin & Stacey is available on BritBox and BBC iPlayer.
