Gavin & Stacey’s Baby Neil says James Corden would be up for making season four – if fans want it

Pretty sure they do, yeah.

Gavin & Stacey‘s Baby Neil has said that James Corden would be up for making a season four of the hit BBC comedy.

Actor Oscar Hartland, who reprised his role as Smithy and Nessa’s son for last week’s Christmas special, said that he asked Corden about the prospect of a fourth season while they were filming.

And the answer, although vague, was promising enough.

“I did ask James in the process of filming, and he said ‘It’s just what the people want,'” Hartland told Good Morning Britain. “Me, I would love it to happen, it really depends what other people think about it, and if they like it or not.”

“But I was so excited at the time. I was like, ‘There has to be a season four, maybe even another special.'”

And like it they definitely did, with Wednesday’s special raking in an impressive 11.5 million viewers, making it the most watched programme of Christmas Day.

The episode ended, as most Gavin & Stacey instalments tend to, with a cliffhanger as Nessa proposed to Smithy following a rather chaotic Christmas dinner in Barry.

The ending, understandably, left viewers wanting more – most notably in the form of a fourth season or another special some time down the line.

Ruth Jones, who co-created the series alongside Corden, has since said that the outcome of the proposal could “go either way.”

“Well, genuinely I don’t know the answer to that,” she told The Sun.

“You could go either way with it. It could be the most ridiculous thing, or it could be a marriage made in heaven.

“But don’t you think it would end the interest? If they did become a proper couple, would that spoil it? These are all questions that we ponder.”

And we will continue to ponder them… until the next episode is released, in five years, probably.
