One of the stars of the hit TV show Gavin and Stacey has confirmed it is making a comeback!

James Corden, who plays Smithy, took too Twitter to reveal news of the show's return.

He told his 10.5m followers that Gavin and Stacey will be back for a Christmas special!

Gavin and Stacey broadcast over three series (plus a Christmas special) from 2007 to 2010 on the BBC.

It followed an ordinary boy from Essex and an ordinary girl from Wales who spoke on the phone to each other every day at work; they finally met, fell in love and got married!

The series went onto explore their love story and the impact their relationship had on their friends and family.

"Everyone at the BBC is hugely excited to be welcoming back Gavin and Stacey to BBC One this Christmas.

"We can’t wait to see what’s happened to everyone over the last nine years, and what’s next for one of the nation’s favourite comedy families".

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content
