James Corden Says He's Sick With Nerves Ahead Of Filming Gavin And Stacey Special

Work will finally start on the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special next week.

Almost 10 years since the iconic sitcom left our screens, fans will finally get a chance to see what the Shipmans and the gang are all up to.

But with actors set to sit down for the first read-through in the coming days, one of the show's creators, James Corden, has said he's bricking it.

Speaking on his hit US chat show which has been filming in London for the past week, the comedian told fans: "This is it now, we go on another break and I'm going to start this on Monday morning - this new Gavin and Stacey special.

"'Or as me and Ruth Jones say, 'We start this new Gavin and [pretends to throw up], just out of nerves'."

The festive special was announced by Corden last month on his Twitter. The entertainer posted a picture of the script, written by himself and Ruth Jones, and said: "Ruth Jones and I have been keeping this secret for a while... We're excited to share it with you. See you on Christmas Day."

The BBC, which broadcast the original show and will air this special on Christmas Day, put out a press release in which Corden and Jones are quoted as having said: "Over the last ten years we've talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey - where they might be today and what their lives might look like.

"And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special. We've loved revisiting Barry and Essex again and bringing the characters back together has been a joy. We're so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas. Thank you BBC for helping to make this happen."

Not everyone is as nervous as Corden though. Joanna Page (who plays Stacey) said: "I'm so excited! It's happening!! See you at Christmas!!!!!! Can't wait to get on the slots down Barry again!!"

While Larry Lamb said it had been tough to keep the news a secret for so long. He said: "So it's official...G&S rides again .. we're doing a 2019 Christmas special ....a treat for the millions of you who've waited so patiently... love to you all ..and Happy Christmas!!!!

"And try not being able to let this little secret out of the bag since Smiffie called from LA about two months ago ... I'm going to get a lot of grief from some very dear friends !!! But anyway..."
