“… And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special. We’ve loved revisiting Barry and Essex again, and bringing the characters back together has been a joy.
“We’re so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas.”
The series first aired back in 2007, but came to an end with a New Year’s Day finale episode in 2010.
Gavin and Stacey’s final episode had record ratings, as it attracted 10.25 million viewers.
