'Gavin & Stacey' Star Insists There Will Be More Future Episodes

'Gavin & Stacey' Star Insists There Will Be More Future Episodes

*This articles contains spoilers for Gavin & Stacey.*

PSA: Gavin & Stacey fans, one of the main cast members have just given us some pretty solid hope there will be more episodes. Yessss!

The hit British sitcom - which ran for three seasons between 2007 and 2010 - returned at Christmas for a one-off special on BBC One.

The hour-long episode was the most-watched TV of Christmas Day, and it left us on an almighty cliffhanger, with Nessa (played by Ruth Jones) proposing to Smithy (James Corden).

Now, Larry Lamb, who plays Mick Shipman in the show, has teased "it's a question of when, not if" we'll find out what happens next.

"I think it would be pretty cruel to leave us on that cliffhanger," the 72-year-old actor told OK! Magazine.

"After the response it got at Christmas, you can more or less be certain that, sooner or later, there will be more.

"I'm sure the BBC can persuade Ruth and James to write more, so it's a question of when, not if."

Larry explained the main hurdle the show faces is the busy schedules of its writers, James Corden and Ruth Jones, and the cast members.

"The problem is, logistically, it's a bloody nightmare as so many people involved with it have very active careers," he said.

"It's virtually impossible for there to be a whole series, but I imagine there will be another special.

"I've always thought a logical thing to do would be a Gavin & Stacey movie, but that's just my idea."

We LOVE that idea, Larry.

The actor's positive comments come just a day after his on-screen wife Alison Steadman - who plays Pam Shipman in the show - said she'd be game for a new series.

"I don't take any notice of rumours, but there's no way I wouldn't do it. I'd run to Cardiff to be involved," she told Radio Times.

There's two of your main cast up for more episodes, and we're sure the rest would jump at the chance.

We think it's time to get writing, James and Ruth...
