After much speculation James Corden will be returning to screens to reprise his role in Gavin and Stacey.
It was reported today that the beloved series was going to be returning for a Christmas special, with cast members including James and Ruth Jones to appear again.
The series was last on screens in 2019, when a special festive episode saw Ruth’s Nessa get down on one knee and propose to James’ Smithy, however it ended with a cliffhanger.
