Gavin & Stacey's Joanna Page updates fans on future of show after stars spotted together

Gavin & Stacey's Joanna Page updates fans on future of show after stars spotted together

The actress, who played Welsh sweetheart Stacey, shared an update on the fate of the beloved British series.

After that epic cliffhanger where Nessa popped the question to Smithy, fans of Gavin and Stacey have been desperate for another instalment of the legendary series.

The characters love managed to transcend from Essex to Billericay, as well as into our homes across the nation.

So it's no wonder that even after four years since our last fix, Brits are still craving a dose of the beloved show.

Pam and Mick - played by Alison Steadman and Larry Lamb - said it would be an 'absolute yes' if they were asked to return, but it still remains a pipe dream for now.

But after co-creators James Corden and Ruth Jones were spotted catching up in London earlier this month, it sparked speculation that they may have been working on a new script.

After The Late Late Show host moved back across the pond in 2022, after eight years in the US, everything seemed to be falling into place.

Corden previously confessed the pair had been unable to make the writing process work remotely, so the fact he and Jones were on the same soil seemed to indicate a new Gavin and Stacey special was imminent.

The hilarious duo were spotted arm in arm trotting through London's Soho, seemingly hinting they were back in lockstep.

But according to Joanna Page, who starred as Welsh darling Stacey alongside, Mathew Horne as Gavin, there isn't much hope of the hit BBC series returning to our screens.

She revealed that she thinks the 2019 Christmas special was the perfect way to wrap up, so that fans can make their own mind up about the characters' fates.

The actress, 46, told the Daily Mail: "I can see them never doing any more because it was nice to leave it on a cliffhanger because it's up to the viewer to imagine what would have happened. So I can imagine them ending it like that."

Page said she would still love to reprise her role and join the all-star cast if they did decide to revive Gavin and Stacey.

She continued: "But all I can say is, if they were going to do another one I hope it's soon because we're all getting so old, I don't particularly want to see Stacey get that much older.

"And if there is a comeback, I'll find out at the same time as the public because I don't get told anything.

"Gavin and Stacey kids would be teenagers now, so that would be quite funny to see."

The mum-of-four also pointed out that the premise of the show would be much different in this day and age - as Gavin and Stacey's daily phone calls would probably be on Zoom.
