Gavin and Stacey stars surprise fans with reunion – but all is not as it seems | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing's Christmas special gave Gavin and Stacey fans a surprise reunion between cast members – though maybe not the way we wanted.

Larry Lamb, who plays Gavin's long-suffering dad Mick on the beloved BBC series, partnered up with Nadiya Bychkova for this year's Strictly Christmas special.



After their American Smooth by Michael Bublé's Winter Wonderland, the actor was surprised by an appearance from Alison Steadman, who played his drama-loving wife Pam.

However, unfortunately she wasn't in the audience, but instead sent him a message via videolink.

Larry burst out laughing as Alison appeared on screen and told him: "Hi Larry! Hi! Congratulations on your american Smooth. Wow. Brilliant. I'm sending you lots and lots of love!"

"Thank you love," Larry responded to the message, with the pair blowing each other kisses through the screen.

"I mean we kinda got a Pam and Michael reunion," one fan wrote, while another exclaimed: "PAM ON THE TELLY" which a string of crying emojis.

It might not be the reunion everyone had hoped for though, with Gavin and Stacey last being seen on our screens in 2019 with a one-off festive special that left the series on a major cliffhanger.

The James Corden and Ruth Jones created series saw the West and Shipman families reuniting for the holiday season, which as can be expected was anything but quiet.

When Gavin's best mate Smithy (Corden) brings his new girlfriend to dinner, things get awkward as longheld tensions with Nessa (Jones) began to surface.

It resulted in Nessa confessing her love to Smithy, getting down on one knee and proposing just as the credits rolled.

Since then fans have been demanding a return, with all involved leaving viewers guessing as to what the outcome would be for the pair – or if indeed we'll ever find out.
