Gavin and Stacey is set to return for a one-off special at Christmas with all of the cast returning.Today, James Corden has shared a sweet snap from rehearsals and it seems the gang is well and truly back together. However, there’s one character not there, and fans will be devastated if it confirms his absence for good. Rob Brydon, who plays Bryn, cannot be seen in the image, but that isn’t to say he isn’t slightly out of frame.
James shared a snap on his Twitter account to his 10.5million followers and the black and white image revealed the major players were at a table read. At the head of the table, Larry Lamb, who plays Mick, could be seen chatting. Next to him, his on-screen wife Alison Steadman, who stars as Pam is making notes. Ruth Jones (Nessa), Joanna Page (Stacey) and Matthew Horne (Gavin), complete one side of the table. The back of Melanie Walters, who plays Gwen, is closest to the camera. There are three empty seats and the final cast member who is on show is Jason star, Robert Wilfort.A couple of figures can be seen towards the left-hand side of the picture, but their identities are currently unknown.
However, it has already been confirmed Rob will return to the series, so fans should fear not. James announced the exciting news last month and sent Twitter into a meltdown.He shared a picture of a script and added: “Ruth Jones and I have been keeping this secret for a while… We’re excited to share it with you.
