Gavin And Stacey: Jones Hints At Film Hopes

Gavin & Stacey actress Ruth Jones has hinted that the hit TV show could be turned into a film.

The BBC comedy, created by Jones and James Corden, ended in 2010, two-and-a-half years after it first aired.

Jones, who played Nessa, told the Radio Times that she would "definitely" be happy to work with Corden, who starred as Smithy, again.

She also suggested that the comedy, featuring Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman, could return for a TV special.

"We haven't any concrete plans but we will at some stage," Jones told the magazine.

"It might be a Gavin & Stacey special or it might be a film..."

James Corden previously said it was ''too good'' to not to return to the small screen.

He said: ''It would be a crime not to, it's a great show.

"Writing with Ruth is a gift, I definitely plan on doing some more.''

Other British shows such as The Inbetweeners and I'm Alan Partridge have found success with recent film adaptations and Gavin & Stacey could be next in line.

The US television version of Gavin & Stacey, called Us & Them, has not proved as popular as the original.

Only six of the planned 13 episodes will now run after the show was cancelled midseason by Fox.
