The BBC has drawn attention to the possible return of Gavin & Stacey after the sitcom’s record breaking Christmas special last year

However, he added that there was “no plan” at the time, while Jones told RadioTimes earlier this year, “I wish I could say we would, but right now there really are no plans ”
While Gavin & Stacey won’t be returning this Christmas, the BBC recently announced their 2020 cast, which includes a Doctor Who Christmas special, the return of Blankety Blank and the eight-part series The Serpent
