'Gavin & Stacey' favourites Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman are reuniting for a new ITV drama, 'Love and Marriage'
Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman are reuniting for a new TV show.
The 'Gavin & Stacey' favourites - who portrayed Gavin's parents Mike and Pam Shipman in the hit BBC sitcom - will star together in 'Love and Marriage'.
The ITV drama - which is currently filming in Coventry - follows a family as they struggle to cope with the consequences of matriarch Pauline walking out on them.
Alison plays lollipop lady Pauline, with Duncan Preston starring as her husband 'Silent Ken', while Larry's role has not been explained.
Steve November, acting director of drama at ITV, said: "'Love and Marriage' is a warm-hearted drama focusing on the highs and lows of family life. It features a stellar cast playing three generations of the Paradise family - all of whom have a fascinating story to tell."
Tiger Aspect executive producer Rebecca de Souza added: "Writer Stewart Harcourt has created the most delightful, funny show. It asks all the big questions about love and marriage."
Joining Alison and Larry in the cast are 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' star Celia Imrie, 'Ugly Betty' actress Ashley Jensen and 'Coronation Street' villain Graeme Hawley, who played evil killer John Stape on the show.
