“Ewan just wanted to see everyone and get some photos he can remember — he’s always seeing James on TV.”

Also seen filming were Larry Lamb, 71, and Alison Steadman, 72 — who play Gavin’s parents Mick and Pam Shipman.


Late Late Show host James revealed earlier this year that he and co-star, Ruth Jones, 52, who plays Nessa Jenkins, had written a script for a  one-off show.

When asked about what fans could expect from the special – James kept the script close to his chest and teased: “We just want the new show to be a nostalgic joy-bomb.”

Gavin and Stacey’s final episode, which aired on New Year’s Day in 2010, was watched by  10.25million.
