Gavin & Stacey's Ruth Jones has revealed why it was "a bit strange" to work with James Corden again for the upcoming Christmas special.

The cast of the hit BBC One sitcom are finally back together for the one-off festive episode, which recently got its first full-length trailer.

But, since Corden took off to America to become a chat show extraordinaire and Hollywood star, Jones said it felt slightly odd for him to come back and pen a script with her once again.

Speaking to Red, she said: "It was a bit strange initially. Although we’d seen each other over the years, we hadn’t spent any great length of time together.

"But what’s nice about the way we write is that we just act out the characters ourselves, so it’s just like playing, really. We make each other laugh a lot.”

On what to expect from the special, she added: "All I’ll say is that it’s very cheery, warm-hearted, Brexit-free and very, very Christmassy."

"We will never again have the effect that we’ve had this time around, having said for 10 years that we’re not doing any more and the announcing something special," she said.

"I think it would be churlish of me to say there won’t be any more. The honest truth is there are no plans, but I don’t think I could ever say never."
