The show features a cast including Rob Brydon, Larry Lamb, Melanie Walters and Alison Steadman.

James added: “We wanted to see if there was something there, and for a while we weren’t sure.

“Then, once there was, my feeling was, life’s too short. Fear is the absolute reason to do it.”

The co-creater alongside Ruth Jones said “We just want the new show to be a nostalgic joy-bomb.”

Corden and Jones say “bringing the characters back has been a joy” and that feels like a good sign. After all, it’s joy, not alcohol, that’s really at the heart of Gavin & Stacey.

Gavin & Stacey aired from 2007 to 2010 with the final episode being watched by 10.2m viewers.
