Gavin and Stacey’s Rob Brydon hints hit show could return to TV once more

Rob Brydon has again revealed he thinks there may be another special episode of Gavin & Stacey.

The actor and comedian, 55, agreed with fans that writers James Corden and Ruth Jones left the hit comedy “hanging” at the end of the Christmas special in 2019.

Fans were left on the edge of their seats as the episode finished on a cliffhanger with Ruth’s character Nessa asking Smithy, played by James, to marry her.

Speaking during his Brydon & podcast Rob, who plays Bryn West in the series, admitted: “Well, I think they might do one more special.

“Because they left it hanging, didn’t they, with the proposal?

“So it would seem strange if they didn’t.

“But they should crack on if they are going to do it.”

His comments came as he discussed the hit show with actress Sheridan Smith, who played Smithy’s sister Ruth “Rudi” Smith in the programme.

She said: “They created this masterpiece sort of one-off Christmas special.

“Now everyone’s asking for more, aren’t they?”

She continued: “What a cast and everyone was so lovely; the crew, everyone, was brilliant on that job.”

The Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps actress said James and Ruth’s creation was “genius”, adding: “They wrote it so well and so to just be a small part of it was an honour.”

Gavin & Stacey proved a huge hit since it first graced television screens in 2007.

The story, which sees a boy from Essex and a Welsh girl embark on an online romance had audiences glued to their screens for three series and fans have been constantly hoping for another episode or series.

The 2019 special became the most watched TV comedy for 17 years after 17.1 million people watched the episode.

Only sporting events and the 2010 X Factor final had brought in bigger crowds over the past decade.
