"Sometimes I'll be doing my show from America and people from the audience will shout out 'tell me what happened on the fishing trip', and I say to them - you need to ask yourself whether you actually want to know.

"And if you do want to know, you might find out on Christmas Day at half past eight."

Ruth also opened up about public reaction to the Christmas Special reveal, saying: "It's had a lot of attention which is a huge compliment. A day doesn't go by when someone doesn't say to me 'I cannot wait for the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special, which is lovely, but on the other hand you go 'I hope they're not going to be disappointed'".

James then added: "I think the greatest pressure comes from ourselves. We have such affection for these characters, we have such affection for this world. I can remember in the 10 years since we last made the show, sometimes people will ask us on the street what's going to happen to these characters. And I would say to people 'I'm as excited as you are'.
