Gavin & Stacey return this Christmas. Here’s a first trailer…

Nearly a decade after the last episode broadcast – on January 1st, 2010, no less – Gavin & Stacey is coming back for a one-off Christmas special, penned by James Corden and Ruth Jones. The pair have also directed the new episode!

The Beeb has released a first trailer the Christmas special, which you can watch below…

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Bryn’s cooking dinner for over thirteen people. Understandably he’s tense. Pam would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen’s house a bit lacking. But the deal has always been that they alternate every year, and this time it’s the turn of the Wests to host Christmas with everyone under one small roof. For Gavin and Stacey, parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their ‘baby’ now being ten. Smithy, too, continues to commit to his fatherly role, making the journey to Barry at weekends and every second Wednesday to see twelve year old Neil the Baby. Nessa on the other hand adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering whilst Pam, Mick and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents. On Christmas Eve, Dawn makes a shocking discovery about Pete that jeopardises their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye opener in more ways than one.”

James Corden originally broke the news of the special on his Twitter feed, where he also confirmed that the new episode will be screened on Christmas Day this year. It’s set to go out on BBC One.
