Gavin and Stacey Christmas special: Spoiler-free episode preview

The countdown is on for the Gavin and Stacey’s Christmas Special is officially on – and now the BBC have given us even more reason to get hyped.

In order to tease us even further (seriously…what are you doing to us), Team Beeb have released the full, spoiler-free, synopsis over what to expect.

It reads: ‘It’s been ten years since 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 (Rob Brydon) is cooking dinner for over thirteen people. Understandably he’s tense.

‘Pam (Alison Steadman) would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen’s (Melanie Walters) 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.’

‘For Gavin (Mathew Horne) and Stacey (Joanna Page), parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their ‘baby’ now being ten,’ it continues.

‘Smithy (James Corden), 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 (Ruth Jones) on the other hand adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering whilst Pam, Mick (Larry Lamb) and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents.’

‘On Christmas Eve, Dawn (Julia Davis) makes a shocking discovery about Pete (Adrian Scarborough) that jeopardizes their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye opener in more ways than one.’

The one-hour special is one of the most anticipated moments of the year, taking pride of place in the BBC Christmas Schedule with an 8.30pm slot on Christmas Day.

What happens on the show is being kept under a firm lock and key, but we can promise this much… it’s going to be one to remember.

We’ve been waiting nine years for this, after all.

Gavin and Stacey: Christmas Special airs Christmas Day at 8.30pm on BBC One.
