Gavin & Stacey will return for its “last ever episode” on Christmas Day, James Corden has announced.

Corden shared a photo on his Instagram of himself and co-creator Ruth Jones holding a script for the show. The text on the front states: Gavin & Stacey: the finale. Written by James Corden and Ruth Jones 2024.”

In the caption, Corden added “Some news…It’s official!” “We have finished writing the last ever episode of Gavin & Stacey. See you on Christmas Day, BBC One. Love Ruth and James.”

The hit comedy first aired in 2007 and lasted for three series, before returning for a one-off special in 2019 – ending on a significant cliffhanger.

It follows the relationship of Gavin Shipman (Matthew Horne) and Stacey West (Joanna Page), and the on-off equivalent of their respective best friends Smithy and Nessa.

A Christmas Day return for the series had been rumoured earlier this year, but Jones was quick to squash speculation.

“If there was something to say on that front, James [Corden] and I would happily announce it,” she said.

The 2019 special was watched by around 18 million viewers.
