James Corden Has Told Gavin And Stacey Cast There Could Be More To Come
Well, it turns out that not only is Ruth Jones considering a fourth series, her co-creator James Corden has also been telling the cast that he's not ruling anything out.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Oscar Hartland - who played Nessa and Smith's son Neil the Baby in the special episode - revealed that he'd quizzed Corden while they were on set, asking about whether or not there's more to come.

He recalled: "I did ask James in the process of filming. He said it's just what the people want.
"Me, I would love it to happen. It really depends what other people think about it and whether they like it or not."
Hartland added: "I would like them to make a series four so much. I would like Smithy to say yes, and for the last episode to be their wedding."
The young actor was one of two babies to previously feature as Baby Neil in the original series of Gavin and Stacey, but was delighted to return to the role for the festive episode.
However, despite already nailing the character as a baby, he still had to audition for the role.
He said: "I didn't really get my hopes up as there were other people who did acting. I was in a couple of newspapers and they noticed me.

"I did my audition in Cardiff. A few weeks later I found out I got the job. It was really cool.
"I thought I was getting a different part but I actually got Neil. I was really excited about filming."
So Neil the Baby's up for it, while co-creator Ruth Jones has also said she believes there is 'room' for further episodes.
Speaking to The Sun, Ruth Jones said: "It is so complicated for me and James to get together to write.
"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. 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.
"But it was such a challenge to get that special filmed."
