Adding a bit of Fi-Nessa… Ruth Jones goes all glam for Gavin and Stacey special

Swanning around: Ruth Jones by the Thames and (below) the January issue of Red magazine out on Wednesday

LOOKS like Nessa’s gone all posh! Gavin And Stacey writer Ruth Jones, who plays the onscreen character, swaps Welsh seagulls for swans in south-west London.

But she hasn’t left Barry Island completely behind as the hit BBC comedy returns for a Christmas special almost ten years since the series ended. Jones, 53, told the January issue of Red magazine it was ‘a bit strange initially’ working with co-star and co-creator James Corden (Smithy) again. But they made each other ‘laugh a lot’.

Back as Gavin is Matthew Horne with Joanna Page returning as Stacey, along with Rob Brydon (Bryn), Larry Lamb (Mick), Alison Steadman (Pam) and Melanie Walters (Gwen). Asked about chances of a new series, Jones said: ‘I don’t think I could ever say never.’
