A First Look At The 'Gavin and Stacey' Christmas Special Is Here

A First Look At The 'Gavin and Stacey' Christmas Special Is Here

Oh BBC, you do treat us well. The broadcaster just gave us a surprise teaser of the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special with exactly a month until the big day.

With just four weeks to go until the Christmas Special - set to hit screens on the 25th December - the channel sneakily dropped a sneak peak on the end of an old-rerun of the season three finale.

The 30-second clip sees Uncle Bryn having a meltdown in the kitchen on Christmas Day. It's all going on around him, as he called for "Gwen, Jason, anyone" for help on his walkie talkie and taps for a recipe on his iPad (yes, this is 2019 now).

The table isn't set in time, the plates are still at Stacey's and Uncle Bryn just scolded his hand. Suddenly, Stacey - who is setting the table - hears a massive crash, and she and Ness run into the kitchen to find the host on the floor, nursing a dropped bread and butter pudding.

"Would you kindly inform everyone that dinner is ever so slightly delayed," he says.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the clip, and naturally, Twitter exploded.

"I cannot frigging wait!," tweeted one person

"That short #GAVINANDSTACEY teaser gave me all kinds of chills and nostalgia," said another.

"OMG the Gavin and Stacey sneak peek !!! I ACTUALLY CANT WAIT :sob: #GAVINANDSTACEY," said a third.

At the same time, the BBC also dropped the first official photo from the reboot, which shows all the main cast hanging out in a pub.

We see Gavin (Matthew Horne), Stacey (Joanna Page), Ness (Ruth Jones), Smithy (James Corden), Bryn (Rob Brydon), Gwen (Melanie Walters), Mick (Larry Lamb), Pam (Alison Steadman) and Jason West (Robert Wilfort).

In May, James Corden confirmed the hit British sitcom - which ran for three seasons between 2007 and 2010 - was returning for a one-off festive special, and excitement ensued.

"Ruth Jones and I have been keeping this secret for a while... We're excited to share it with you. See you on Christmas Day ⁦@BBCOne⁩ #GavinandStacey," the 41-year-old tweeted at the time.

In a statement on the show's return, Ruth and James said: "Over the last ten years we've talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey - where they might be today and what their lives might look like. And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special.

"We've loved revisiting Barry and Essex again and bringing the characters back together has been a joy."

They added: "We're so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas. Thank you BBC for helping to make this happen."

WE'RE SO EXCITED.
