But after we watch the Christmas Special, is that last we can expect from the Wests and the Shipmans? We want more Gavin and Stacey. Ten years on from the last episode, will this be our last glimpse into Essex and Barry?
Matthew Horne, who plays Gavin, certainly hopes it won’t be as in a recent interview when asked if he would return for more episodes, he said:
“I don’t know, you would have to ask the people who write it. It would be lovely, yeah.
“Considering the experience I had back in August, filming it, I would love to get together again with everybody because, it sounds really trite, but it was just like putting on a pair of slippers and sitting with your family.
“It was just delightful, so of course I would love to do more, but it’s not really up to me.”
Very exciting. Speaking of the upcoming Christmas Special, Horne added:
“I am very very proud of it, I would go as far as to say I think it’s the best episode of the show we have ever done.”
Very exciting stuff…
Shockingly, Christmas day.
Matthew Horne also spoke about that, saying:
“I think I will watch on Christmas Day. As time has gone on in my career I less and less watch of myself because I can’t bear looking at the passage of time, if I can be so existential, but I really wanted to see this and I’m really happy with it.
“So, I think I will be watching it, there is not much else to do. I don’t know what the other channels are going to be showing but it would certainly seem silly to watch something else.”
