Chatting on BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, he said: I wish I could say it's up to me. The best thing about Gavin & Stacey is that it's Ruth and I and, if I'm being completely honest, her judgement is exceptional. Look, I am going to have a bit more free time next year and that will open some time for us to just be together, I hope."

I mean we never hear anything because Ruth and James don’t tell us anything until we get a phone call and they say it’s happening again, but I’ve absolutely no idea.

"When we finished we thought: 'Right, okay, that is the end.' But they’re very clever, I mean they’ve left it open. I could see it going either way.’"
