Since the airing of the new episode, rumours have been rife about whether or not there will be a fourth series, with cast members such as Oscar Hartland (Neil ‘The Baby’) and Larry Lamb (Mick Shipman) expressing their wishes for another series or even a movie, after the Christmas Special’s immense success.
However, until that time comes Virgin Experiences has launched a Gavin and Stacey tour in Barry Island, South Wales.
And it’s only £60!
The tour travels via (Dave’s) coaches and takes your group across different destinations in the town, including not only Stacey’s home but also the amusement arcade where Nessa worked and the Church where Neil ‘The Baby’ was christened.
You’ll also be able to see the caravan where Nessa lived with Dave and where she conducted her fortune telling business.
The tour lasts for approximately three hours and finishes with a quiz on the show (with prizes up for the grabs) and all on the tour receive a selection of discounts to use in the seaside town.
For two people the tour costs £60 and the tickets are valid for a year after purchase, meaning you they make the perfect gift for a Gavin and Stacey fan. The tour has received praise already online, but Virgin has recommended booking a month in advance in order to get your preferred dates.
The tour is expected to be immensely popular, seen as the Christmas special was the most-watched TV comedy in 17 years, making it the most watched comedy since Only Fools and Horses in 2002.
The episode saw two of our favourite TV fams reunite for the first time in nine years for one hour of pure Gavin & Stacey nostalgia, with that WTF ending shocking fans as the Beeb caught the ending before we got the answer to Ness’ proposal.
But fret not, as according to series creator Ruth Jones (who writes the show alongside James Corden and plays Nessa), there could be more Gavin & Stacey episodes on the horizon.
In a recent interview with The Sun, Jones said she wouldn’t rule out more episodes in the future.
She told The Sun:
“I do say never say never, as while we did make it work that was after three years of trying to find time when we could sit down and write it.
“Obviously with the way it ends, there is room for more.”
“It’s a shame we didn’t have more time when we were writing so we could have written more, then have it all ready to go.”
I mean, they sort of have to now, don’t they?
