'Gavin and Stacey' looks set to be turned into a West End musical after co-writer Ruth Jones confirmed she would ''love'' to put the show onto the stage
'Gavin and Stacey' looks set to be turned into a West End musical.
Ruth Jones - who co-wrote the BBC series with actor James Corden, who is currently starring in West End play 'One Man Two Guvnors' - has announced plans for the show to be turned into a stage production after a Christmas special was axed this year.
She said: "We'd love to do 'Gavin and Stacey: The Musical'. I know it is something James wants to do too.
"I saw 'Billy Elliot' on stage the other day and I thought it would be something good to do. It's something I would definitely be up for."
The 45-year-old star - who plays Nessa in the sitcom - is planning to write a 'Gavin and Stacey' Christmas special with James (Smithy), but she is disappointed they weren't able to pen a one-off special in time for this year.
Ruth added to the Daily Star newspaper: "We will definitely be doing another episode of 'Gavin and Stacey'.
"We wanted to do a Christmas special but it keeps getting moved back. I would have liked to have done it this year but I have a new 10-part series and James has just started a play. He's also just become a dad so we've been pretty busy. But James and I are very close and will keep in touch about a new show."
