Filming for the popular TV series commences in Barry.

A post has been shared on Facebook by Bro Radio – the community radio station broadcasting to Barry and surrounding areas in the Vale of Glamorgan with a series of photos showing Christmas decorations appearing in Trinity Street.

Now, for anyone that might be wondering, Trinity Street is the location where part of hit TV series Gavin & Stacey is filmed. As fans of the series will know, actor and co-creator James Corden recently shared the news that the show would be back for a Christmas special in December 2019 after fans have begged and pleaded for another fix of the popular show since it previously aired on TV.

Series one broadcast from 13 May to 10 June 2007 on BBC Three, Series two also broadcast on BBC Three from 6 March to 20 April 2008. A Christmas special then saw the series move to BBC One airing 24 December 2008, Series three also aired on BBC One from 26 November 2009 to 1 January 2010.

Over the last ten years we’ve talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey – where they might be today and what their lives might look like. And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special. We’ve loved revisiting Barry and Essex again and bringing the characters back together has been a joy. We’re so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas. Thank you BBC for helping to make this happen

Everyone at the BBC is hugely excited to be welcoming back Gavin and Stacey to BBC One this Christmas. We can’t wait to see what’s happened to everyone over the last nine years, and what’s next for one of the nation’s favourite comedy families.
