Gavin and Stacey star Ruth Jones has stressed there will be no Christmas special of the sitcom this year.

But the actress, who played straight-talking Nessa Jenkins in the show, said a reunion hasn’t been completely ruled out.

At the TV Choice Awards, where the show was named Best Comedy, Ruth said: “I love that everybody has decided there is a Christmas special. I tell you, honestly, honestly, there isn’t a Christmas special.

“We might do one in the future, but there isn’t one this year. We haven’t ruled it out at some point.”

Gavin and Stacey, set in both Billericay, Essex and Barry, Wales, was broadcast for three series, bowing out on New Year’s Day.
