James Cordon and Ruth Jones are delighted Gavin And Stacey will return

Gavin And Stacey co-writers James Cordon and Ruth Jones have revealed there will be a third series of the show.

The pair announced the plans in front of a live radio audience in Barry Island, South Wales, where the show is set.

‘Truly, we will absolutely try our best not to let you or the show down,’ James told the crowd.

A Christmas edition of the popular BBC comedy, starring actor Mathew Horne, airs tonight.
