Gavin And Stacey Could Be Getting More Episodes As Larry Lamb Drops Hint

Larry Lamb has teased the possibility of more episodes of Gavin & Stacey.

The actor has been quizzed on whether the show will be back on many occasions since the last special aired in 2019.

And he dropped the biggest hint yet when asked by Metro recently, simply replying: "I think it would be pretty short-sighted if there wasn't.

"I'd be happy to do more. Everybody that's involved with it sees it as a team event. If they're doing more, you're part of it."

Larry also famously starred as Archie Mitchell in EastEnders, but he says that Gavin & Stacey is now his biggest claim to fame.

He said: "I've had people say to me, 'You were in EastEnders - were you Dirty Den?'

"But I get recognised much more as Mick Shipman from Gavin & Stacey. It had such a huge audience."

He added that the fame he got from both shows has since changed his life.

"Those two shows changed my life completely and meant I could do a lot of things I'd always really wanted to do. I'm a history nut and was doing history programmes and things for The One Show," he said.

"I also did a travel show with my son George, interviews, game shows, being a celebrity. I was busy all he time but very little acting. It was a welcome change in my career."

The 2019 Christmas special ended with a huge cliffhanger, as Nessa (Jones) proposed to Smithy (Corden).

And Larry Lamb isn't the only cast member to suggest a new episode was inevitable at some point.

Speaking during his podcast, 'Brydon &', Rob Brydon told guest Sheridan Smith: "I think they might do one more special because they left it hanging, didn't they, with the proposal?

"So it would seem strange if they didn't. But they should crack on if they are going to do it."

While there has been no official confirmation of another special, writer James Corden has previously said he "hopes so much" that the sitcom, he wrote with Ruth Jones, will return.

The the Late Late Show host added, though, that if the show did make a comeback for another special, it "will really be the last, final part". Sob.

Gavin and Stacey ran from 2007 until 2010. And 2019's festive edition of the sitcom broke records, being the BBC's most-viewed non-sporting event in over a decade and the most-watched comedy programme in 17 years, after drawing a staggering 18.49 million on Christmas Day.

Let's hope James and Ruth eventually give us what we want!
