The 'Gavin & Stacey' Christmas Special Plot Has Been Revealed And It's Festive Comedy Gold
The countdown for the Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special is on - and we have questions.
Did Smithy and Nessa get together? Have Gavin and Stacey had a baby? Will Dave and Nessa be digging out their Rudolph and Santa outfits for the occasion?
Recent teasers have prompted speculation as to the story, from Uncle Bryn frantically preparing Christmas dinner to a glimpse of what looked like Gavin and Stacey's child.
Now the BBC has released a synopsis - and the plotline sounds every bit as brilliant as the original series. Here's what we know.
The show will be set ten years after we last went to Billericay to spend Christmas with the Shipmans and the Wests.
"This year we're off to Wales for the festivities, where Bryn's cooking dinner for over thirteen people," reads the synopsis.
"Understandably, he's tense. Pam would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen's house a bit lacking. But the deal has always been that they alternate every year, and this time it's the turn of the Wests to host Christmas with everyone under one small roof."
Meanwhile, Neil the Baby is all grown up, and Gavin and Stacey are parents themselves.
"For Gavin and Stacey, parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their 'baby' now being ten. Smithy, too, continues to commit to his fatherly role, making the journey to Barry at weekends and every second Wednesday to see twelve-year-old Neil the Baby."
"Nessa adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering whilst Pam, Mick and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents. On Christmas Eve, Dawn makes a shocking discovery about Pete that jeopardises their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye-opener in more ways than one."
Parenthood. Marriages in jeopardy. Family politics over the turkey. We're as excited for this comedy comeback as Uncle Bryn was about his first lads night out in Cardiff.
