The BBC have said that a second series of Gavin and Stacey stars James Corden and Mathew Horne’s sketch show is ‘not feasible’.

The first run of Horne & Corden got good viewing figures but was not popular with TV critics.

The BBC told The Sun: “After exploring making another series, it has been decided this would not be feasible due to other commitments so all plans are on hold.”

Last month, Mathew Horne told the paper that they were hopeful for a second series: “The BBC want us to do it but nothing’s definite yet. We’re taking it slowly and making sure it’s absolutely right.

“Horne & Corden was a frustrating time because it was the highest rating BBC3 comedy.

He added: “It was only supposed to appeal to a certain cross-section and we were getting wonderful figures, but critics wrote about it as if it was supposed to be another Gavin & Stacey.

“We’re going to carry on because we don’t make shows for critics, we make them for people.”
