Ruth Jones is adamant she and James Corden will never make another series of 'Gavin and Stacey' because it's "done."

'Gavin & Stacey' will never make a return.

The comedy came to an end in 2010 after three years on screen and fans have been begging Ruth Jones and James Corden - who penned the three series - to revive ever since but the 50-year-old actress, who also played Vanessa Shanessa 'Nessa' Jenkins in the show, has confirmed there will never ever be another instalment.

Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Tuesday (12.09.17), she said: "That is absolutely it. There is definitely, definitely, definitely, definitely, definitely not going to be any more."

However, it looks like the cast have other ideas as Larry Lamb - who played patriarch Mick Shipman in the programme - is convinced it will return in a film format soon.

He said previously: "I don't think anybody that was in it would ever say no to it. I think it's highly unlikely that they'll ever make another television series of 'Gavin & Stacey'. I think it's a distinct possibility that one day, they might make a film, that's it. That's purely conjecture... It's got a huge audience, so I'm sure that's what they'll do."

And, although he's not usually keen on going back to previous jobs, the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' contestant thoroughly enjoyed 'Gavin & Stacey'.

He explained: "'Gavin and Stacey' was one of my career highs. The thing was, we knew it was something special. We came together. I knew Alison [Steadman, who played his on-screen wife Pam Shipman], but she was the only person I knew and the first day comes and we all gather together.

"We knew right then it was something special we all had the script and read it but as actors bring the words to life it was something special from the off. I'm still in touch with Alison and we don't live that far so I still see her at things."
