Gavin & Stacey

Gavin is an ordinary boy from Essex; Stacey is an ordinary girl from Barry, South Wales. They’ve spoken on the phone every day at work for months but they’ve never actually met … until now.

Written by and starring Ruth Jones (Little Britain) and James Corden (Carpool Karaoke), this new British comedy series also features Mathew Horne (Catherine Tate), Joanna Page (Love Actually), Rob Brydon, Alison Steadman, Larry Lamb and Melanie Walters.

As the series begins, Gavin and Stacey finally plan to meet up. Stacey’s guardian uncle, Bryn, is concerned as ever for his niece’s well-being and provides her with a personal alarm for her visit to London. Gavin’s mum, Pamela, is very excited for her “little prince”, while his best mate, Smithy, is sceptical and more concerned about what Stacey’s mate, Nessa, is going to look like. Nessa, meanwhile, couldn’t care either way. 

When the four friends meet up, several pints and eight aftershocks later, romance blossoms in the most unexpected of places.
