It seems so long after that the final episode of the final season of Gavin and Stacey was airing – which made the news of the 2019 Christmas special all the more sweeter. If watching the special a few weeks ago has gotten you all riled up for another huge dose of Welsh comedy goodness, and if you’re planning another epic binge of the entire show, here are 20 facts about Gavin and Stacey that you didn’t already know!
