The 45-year-old actor plays the titular Gavin Shipman in the beloved BBC sitcom which chronicles the Essex boy's relationship with Barry Island beauty Stacey West - played by Joanna Page - and the joining of their two eccentric families.

The comedy - which is written by James Corden and Ruth Jones, who also play Smithy and Nessa Jenkins - was last seen on screens as a 2019 Christmas special in 2019 and the episode, which was watched by 11.6 million viewers, ended on a cliff-hanger as Nessa proposed to Smithy.

Horne admits he is constantly asked by fans if there will be 'Gavin and Stacey' but he genuinely has no idea if Corden and Jones have plans to write more instalments.

In an interview with the Metro newspaper’s ‘60 Seconds With…’ feature, he said: "I’m not sick of being asked. I just don’t have the answers. That’s the problem, because the questions inevitably centre around, ‘Is there going to be any more?’ And I absolutely have no idea."

Recently, Alison Steadman - who played Gavin’s mother Pam - claimed that a full series would be “too draining” but she would be up for another special to continue the story.

Speaking to the Radio Times, the 77-year-old actress : "The Christmas special cliffhanger ending was brilliant. I was really touched and moved by it.

"A special would be great fun and it wouldn't be too draining and exhausting."

Ruth, 56, recently vowed that she will never rule out bringing back 'Gavin and Stacey'.

The 56-year-old writer-and-actress said: "I think we both think that there are pros and cons.

“If I go back to before we did the Christmas special that was 10 years that passed before we did the 2019 special and I think then we thought we would never bring it back again and we did. I don’t know.”
