Gavin and Stacey made a huge return to BBC on Christmas Day (Picture: PA)

Sheridan Smith would be keen for a Gavin and Stacey comeback, following the success of the reunion last year.

The BBC show made a triumphant return on Christmas Day, with more than 17million of us tuning in to watch what James Corden’s Smithy, Nessa (Ruth Jones) and the gang were up to now.

And the 38-year-old – who played Smithy’s sister, Rudi – would love to reprise her role once more.

‘I’d definitely come back for a series,’ she told the Sun. ‘I’m not in touch with James — he lives in America. If I saw him here, we’d hug.

‘I’ve got a lot of love for him but we don’t see each other.’

Could you just imagine a 2020 rehash of their American Boy rap?

Unfortunately for us all, we might just have to as James revealed there have been zero talks of a potential follow-up.

‘We have no plans to make another, not at the moment,’ the 41-year-old confessed, while chatting to Lorraine from the Oscars red carpet.

‘We’ll have a sit down and think about that at some point but we certainly haven’t had that discussion yet.

‘We’re over the moon that that many people would watch it. It’s a mind-blowing number.’

The Christmas special ended on a whopper of a cliffhanger when Nessa popped the question to Smithy, in a scene which had us all choking on our turkey leftovers.

And we’re not the only ones who are desperate for more.

Joanna Page – who plays Stacey Shipman – is equally keen to explore a full reunion, and teased that the cast would ‘love to do more’ of the show.

‘If I had to put a bet on it I would say yes – but I have no idea if it is coming back,’ she told the publication.

‘I thought we would never do it again, I spent 10 years telling people we were never doing it again, then suddenly we did the special!

‘But when I first read [the script] on my phone and got to the end I thought: “What!! They can’t leave it like that!!”

‘I want to know if Smithy is going to say yes, so they’ve got to do one.’

We totally agree.
