The Gavin & Stacey Christmas special will premiere on BBC One on Christmas Day (Wednesday December 25th) at 8:30pm, it has been announced.
Gavin & Stacey follows Gavin, an ordinary boy from Essex in England and Stacey (Joanna Page), an ordinary girl from Barry in Wales, spoke on the phone to each other every day at work, and then they finally met, fell in love and got married. The special is being produced by Fulwell 73, Tidy Productions and Baby Cow Productions and stars Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, Ruth Jones, James Corden, Rob Brydon, Larry Lamb, Melanie Walters and Alison Steadman.
In the special, 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 jeopardizes their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye opener in more ways than one.
