Gavin And Stacey Stars Spotted Filming On Barry Island

Gavin and Stacey fans have gone wild after two cast members were spotted filming on Barry Island.


Anyone order another episode of Gavin and Stacey?

The hit British sitcom may have come to an end in December 2019 after three side-splitting seasons, only reprising for the odd Christmas special, but it looks like there could be more in sight for the loveable duo as well as Smithy, Nessa, Uncle Byrn, Pam, Mick and the rest of the gang.


Eagle-eyed fans spied two cast members on Barry Island joined by a camera crew.

The sighting has sparked speculation over whether the sitcom could be set to return.

Gavin and Stacey fans were left on tenterhooks after the last Christmas special in 2019.


The episode saw Nessa (Ruth Jones) get down on one knee to Smithy (James Corden).

However, in classic television fashion, Nessa's proposal wasn't met with an answer, but the show's end credits.

As the credits rolled, so did viewers' tears of frustration.

But now may mark the end of our tears and the time to pick up our pints of wine in celebration.


The two cast members spotted in South Wales were none other than Larry Lamb - who plays the role of Mick Shipman - and Alison Steadman - who plays Pam Shipman.

As one Twitter user noted, 'what are the odds' of the pair appearing on Barry Island accompanied by a camera crew if they're not filming for some sort of spin-off episode - or do we even dare suggest another season - of Gavin and Stacey?

"Alison Steadman and Larry Lamb (BLOODY PAM AND MICK) have been spotted filming ON BARRY ISLAND! *deep breaths," another user wrote.


A dedicated fan even hopped onto TikTok with a compilation video of all the images sneaked of the duo.

One photo even saw Larry Lamb spot the camera and give a cheerful wave.

The TikToker indeed also speculated whether such a sighting could point to the pair 'filming a new season of Gavin and Stacey'.


Lamb has previously hinted that the series could make a comeback.

Earlier this year, in an interview with BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker and Sally Nugent, Lamb said that he reckoned 'something [would] happen [...] sooner or later'.

However, he admitted he was 'probably one of the worst people in the world to ask' and that any plans to reunite the dysfunctional families together was 'super hush hush, like trying to find out what happened in Number 10'.

The actor ultimately resolved that he didn't know.

James Corden is also reported as returning to the UK after The Late Late Show wraps in 2023, which fans believe to be another sign of the gang reuniting.

The possibility of Gavin and Stacey returning can quite simply only be summarised properly in the words of none other than Pam Shipman.

"Oh my Christ!"
