Ruth Jones hints more Gavin & Stacey is to come after that massive cliffhanger

*Warning – spoilers ahead for Gavin and Stacey Christmas special*

The nation was left screaming at their televisions on Christmas night as Gavin and Stacey ended on a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers.

In the closing moments of the Christmas special, Nessa (Ruth Jones) got down on one knee and proposed to Smithy (James Corden) – but before he could answer, the show cut to the credits.

Viewers have been demanding more episodes, as we can’t possibly endure another decade without knowing if Neil the baby’s parents give it a go.

And Ruth, who is also the writer and creator of the series, has hinted that there could be more Gavin and Stacey in the future.

Speaking to The Sun, the 53-year-old said that it was ‘so complicated’ to get together with James, 41, to write, seeing as they’re on different continents, but she won’t rule out more episodes.

She said: ‘I do say never say never, as while we did make it work that was after three years of trying to find time when we could sit down and write it.

‘Obviously with the way it ends, there is room for more.’

However, Ruth added that it was a ‘challenge’ to get even the Christmas special filmed, saying: ‘It’s a shame we didn’t have more time when we were writing so we could have written more, then have it all ready to go.’

So you’re saying there’s a chance?

After nine years away from the BBC, the Billericay and Barry gangs crashed back onto our screens last night in a festive special that has been praised by viewers.

The special saw Gavin (Mathew Horne) and Stacey (Joanna Page) struggling to keep the passion alive after having three – yes, three – kids together, while Nessa raised Neil the baby in Wales, while enjoying trysts with Smithy every fortnight.

However, Smithy has since found a new girlfriend, Sonia (Laura Aikman), and plans on proposing – but only after everybody meets her at Christmas.

Sonia chastises her boyfriend – who has entirely changed the way he speaks around her – over his weight and doesn’t gain many fans in Barry, resulting in Nessa telling her baby daddy how she really feels.

One part of the special that didn’t please everybody, though, was Bryn (Rob Brydon) and Nessa’s performance of Fairytale of New York, which included the uncensored slur ‘f****t’ in the second verse.

Gavin and Stacey is available to watch on iPlayer.
