Gavin and Stacey may have finished almost 10 years ago but it is still one of the most beloved British sitcoms. So when it was announced the show would be returning for a Christmas episode, it was no surprise fans were ecstatic to welcome it back to BBC One, even if it is just for one night. Here's who will be in the cast of the long-awaited episode.
Who is in the cast of Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special?
Gavin and Stacey Shipman – Matthew Horne and Joanna Page
The BBC One sitcom started when Essex boy Gavin and Stacey from Barry, Wales, first started dating and the Christmas special will find out what happened to the couple next.
Last time we saw them, Gavin and Stacey were married, moved to Barry and were expecting their first child.
In the show, we'll find out if they did stay in Wales and whether or not they went on to have any more children.
One of Horne's best known roles is for playing the grandson in The Catherine Tate Show.
He has also been in Drunk History and Jack Whitehall's Bad Education.
Page on the other hand has been part of children's animations Poppy Cat and Q Pootle 5 and played Queen Elizabeth I in Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special.

Vanessa 'Nessa' Jenkins – Ruth Jones
Nessa is one of the show's greatest mysteries: from living in India and directing hundreds of Bollywood films to having a relationship with former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, fans are hoping to hear more of her outrageous stories in the upcoming episode.
She also had a baby with Smithy (played by James Corden) but we'll have to wait and see to find out if they got together in the past 10 years.
After Gavin and Stacey ended, Jones wrote and starred in Sky One comedy-drama Stella which ran for six series.

Neil 'Smithy' Smith – James Corden
Billericay tradesman Smithy is back and we should expect plenty of refusals to share food, outbursts of singing and dancing and a few Gavlars chucked in here and there.
At the end of the last season, Smithy stopped Nessa's wedding to coach driver Dave (Steffan Rhodri) but his feelings towards her were still unclear.
Will him and Nessa get together again this Christmas or have they done already in the past decade?
Corden has been the most successful after leaving the show, having gone on to present The Late Late Show in America as well as fronting the successful spin-off series Carpool Karaoke.
Rob Brydon – Bryn West
Comedian Brydon is back, reprising his role as the beloved Bryn.
The proud Welshman is Stacey's uncle and after the death of her father, played a huge role in her upbringing so we are bound to see him looking after her child in the new episode.
In the trailer for the Christmas special, Bryn is shown freaking out in the kitchen as he tries to get dinner ready for the whole family but somehow manages to drop a lot of it on the floor.
But will he end up ruining the Christmas meal for everyone?
Brydon also hosts BBC One's comedy panel show Would I Lie To You and has also starred in The Trip alongside Steve Coogan.
Robert Wilfort – Jason West
One mystery which has yet to be solved is what happened with Stacey's brother Jason and Uncle Bryn on the fishing trip many moons ago.
Throughout the show's entirety, fans were teased about what went on but nothing was ever fully revealed.
So will we finally get to find out why there's been so much tension around the pair of them?
Wilfort has been in Tudor drama Wolf Hall and literary fantasy Dickensian and has also provided the voice of Samson on the children's favourite Thomas and Friends.
Other memorable cast members include:
Mick Shipman – Larry Lamb
Pam Shipman – Alison Steadman
Gwen West – Melanie Walters
Pete and Dawn Sutcliffe – Adrian Scarborough and Julia Davis
