Joanna Page to star with fellow Gavin and Stacey cast in brand new show

Actress Joanna Page has reunited with her ‘Gavin and Stacey’ co-stars for a brand new show.

The 46-year-old actress played Stacey in the BBC Three sitcom alongside Mathew Horne, James Corden, Ruth Jones, Alison Steadman, and Larry Lamb over the course of three initial series from 2007 until 2010 and has now provided the voiceover on a show starring some of her former castmates as she mused that a revival of the sitcom would be “so lovely”.

“Alison and Larry have just done a show where they’re going from ‘Barry to Billericay’ and I’ve done the voiceover and I found it really difficult to voice because I was watching them and I kept missing my cue. And I was going ‘Look at them, they’re like my mum and dad!’ I couldn’t take it seriously because I was smiling and laughing. [A reunion] would be so lovely. When we all first started it was like an instant family. We’re all still constantly in touch with each other, my gosh we send each other so many messages!”

The ‘Love Actually’ star went on to add that the series – which returned in 2019 for a Christmas special and ended on a cliffhanger when Nessa (Ruth Jones ) popped the question to Smithy (James Corden) – should be brought back so viewers can find out what happens but admitted that scheduling is a big issue even though she has such fond memories of “boding” with the cast.

She told the sun: “We struggle to even make time for our own families. But then I agree, we have GOT to find out what Smithy says to Nessa!

“I’ve never done a show since ‘Gavin and Stacey’ where we all bonded so much. As soon as the show finished, I couldn’t stop crying, I thought: ‘I can’t bear to not have these people in my life’. This job and ‘Gavin and Stacey’ are the only jobs where it was like a family.”
