Rob Brydon wants to do a 'Gavin and Stacey' 10th anniversary special.
The 51-year-old actor played Uncle Bryn in the popular comedy series which ran from 2007 to 2010, and despite being pleased that the cast members left the show "on a high", he would love to come back for an anniversary special if the writers, James Corden and Ruth Jones - who also starred in the show as Smithy and Vanessa respectively - were on board.
He said: "If James and Ruth want to do it then I think we'd all do it. It's them really. I think it's a real balance between, 'Let's leave it on a high, people love it,' but there's also a big feeling of, 'Oh it would be so lovely to get back together and do a special.'"
And Rob says he originally wanted to leave the show alone because he thought coming back to it might ruin it, but now that he's gotten older he thinks it would be "lovely" to get the cast - which also included Mathew Horne and Joanna Page as the titular Gavin and Stacey - back together again.
He added: "Just one Christmas special, that would be nice. In the past I've always said I don't want to do anymore because I wanted to leave it on a high, but I must admit, mellowing in my old age, I'm thinking now, it would be lovely because everyone likes each other."
However, the reunion unfortunately wouldn't feature all the old cast, as Margaret John - who played foul mouthed neighbour Doris - passed away in 2011 after a brief battle with liver cancer.
Rob told The Sun newspaper: "We've lost Maggie who played Doris, she's gone now. But everyone else right now is still around so it would be lovely because we all like each other so much and it's a great show. I'm very proud of the show. And I love playing Bryn, so who knows. I wouldn't rule it out."
