No more Gavin and Stacey planned

Gavin and Stacey star Ruth Jones said there are “no plans” to do another series of the show any time soon.

The Welsh writer and actress is currently filming a second series of her Sky show Stella and has signed on for a third series.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, she said reports the show was coming back started when her co-star James Corden was “misquoted”.

She said: “I think what he said was ’It would be a shame for me and Ruth not to write again together’ but there are no plans to do any more at the moment.

“He’s really busy, I’m really busy”.

Jones also said the idea of writing for the stage had “crossed” her mind, adding: “It frightens me a bit if I’m honest, maybe because it’s not the medium I’m familiar with as an actress”.
