Cast of Gavin and Stacey set to reunite for Christmas special

The cast of Gavin and Stacey are set to reunite for a Christmas special.

The popular BBC show returned last Christmas Day for a special, becoming the most watched UK scripted TV show of the last decade with over 17.1million viewers tuning in.

This year, Mathew Horne (Gavin) and Joanna Page (Stacey) will get together again for the festive season, as they reunite with their co-stars to host a radio special.


BBC Radio Wales will broadcast the special from 12pm until 2pm on Christmas Day, with Larry Lamb, Alison Steadman, Melanie Walters, Steffan Rhodri and Robert Wilfort all set to take part.

BBC have also promised a special message from the show’s co-creator James Corden, who is currently living in LA.

Joanna said: “When it came up that we could do a Christmas Day show I knew that if there was anybody I’d want to share that with, it’s Mat. I love working with him, he’s so much fun.

Mathew added: “I love working with Jo, I love Wales and I love doing radio. Christmas Day is a special day and, particularly this year, it’s been very challenging for a lot of people, so it’s nice to feel like we might be bringing a little bit of joy.”
