Meanwhile, fans are waiting for an update on a follow-up to the 2019 Gavin and Stacey Christmas special - but they might have a while before it comes out! Previously chatting about the show on This Morning, James Corden said: “I hope so much that we get to do one as I think it would be strange to leave it where we left it.”

Fingers crossed we hear about another Christmas special soon

Speaking about the Christmas special cliffhanger, he also opened up about whether Smithy would have said yes to Nessa’s proposal. He said: “I honestly don't know the answer, I have no idea. I'm as excited to find out as you are. I don't know! Really, it's just about finding the time to do it, and finding out if it's good enough. Nobody wants an episode that doesn't deliver. We've got to let the tanks fill up again."
