Rylan will host the new series of Supermarket Sweep

Ever since the 2020 Christmas special of Gavin and Stacey, fans have been desperate to know if more episodes are on the cards. Although a new series is yet to be announced, writer Ruth Jones recently gave the latest update on her and co-writer James Corden's working together again.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, she said: "James and I did Zoom a few times. But we didn't do any writing. In fact, I remember us both saying how uncreative we both felt. And since then we've not even mentioned work, just talked about the family and how we're feeling. It does seem like a waste doesn't it, not to have spent all those lockdown hours writing? But I just couldn't get into the groove." The actress, who played Nessa in the comedy, also revealed that she and James will be working on a project together in the future, explaining: "It may not be Gavin and Stacey. But it'll be something."
