Matthew Horne Wants To Do More 'Gavin & Stacey' Episodes

Chatter around the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special has been buzzing since the news was announced in May, with fans desperate to see the Barry Island crew reunite for the one-off special.

But now, it might be time to get even further excited, as show star Mathew Horne says he'd "love" to film more episodes. Eeeek.

"I don't know, you would have to ask the people who write it. It would be lovely, yeah," the actor who plays Gavin told PA.

"Considering the experience I had back in August, filming it, I would love to get together again with everybody because, it sounds really trite, but it was just like putting on a pair of slippers and sitting with your family.

"It was just delightful, so of course I would love to do more, but it's not really up to me."

While we wait for Ruth Jones and James Corden to get working on that new series, we have the Christmas Day Special to look forward to.

And Mathew, 41, added something extremely exciting about the episode: "I am very very proud of it, I would go as far as to say I think it's the best episode of the show we have ever done."

Speaking about whether he'll be tuning in on Christmas Day, he said: "I think I will watch on Christmas Day"... Got something better to be watching, Mat?!

He added: "As time has gone on in my career I less and less watch of myself because I can't bear looking at the passage of time, if I can be so existential, but I really wanted to see this and I'm really happy with it.

"So, I think I will be watching it, there is not much else to do. I don't know what the other channels are going to be showing but it would certainly seem silly to watch something else."

We for one will 100 per cent be tuning in. Yesterday, exactly a month until the special airs, the BBC 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.

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).

Buzzing for this one.
