Gavin and Stacey are officially back, five years after the sitcom's last episode aired.

According to a new report, the beloved TV show will return for a Christmas special, with cast members including James Corden and Ruth Jones set to be in the cast once again.

It is understood the new episode will be filmed over the summer.

The last time Gavin and Stacey were on our TV screens was in 2019, when a special festive episode saw Ruth's Nessa get down on one knee and propose to James' Smithy.

The installment was left on an agonizing cliffhanger, with viewers wondering what happened to the two.

We hope that we now have our answer, with Deadline first reporting the news of the show's return.
