Despite his huge success in America, James Corden is thinking about bringing Gavin & Stacey back for another series after gauging the reaction to the Christmas special.
The Cats actor has told his fellow cast mates on the show that it’s definitely on the cards, but only if there’s an appetite.
Neil the Baby actor, Oscar Hartland, revealed that he had quizzed Corden on the possibility while on set.
‘I asked James Corden and he said it was about what the fans want,’ he explained.
‘He said he doesn’t want people to be like “Oh no, it’s Gavin & Stacey on again”.’
Oscar, 10, is desperate for the show to return and was one of two babies to star in the show since the very beginning.
‘I would like them to make a series four so much. I would like Smithy to say yes, and for the last episode to be their wedding,’ he said.
It wasn’t a given that Oscar got the role, but attended an audition in the summer to reprise his role as Smithy and Nessa’s son.
Oscar wants to reunite with his Gavin & Stacey family and admits that the cast have been discussing how they could make it a full blown return.
‘All the cast would talk about how good it was to be back and how we could start it off again and what could happen,’ he revealed, according to the Daily Star.
Gavin and Stacey’s Christmas special achieved the highest Christmas Day ratings in more than a decade.

The return of the much-hyped sitcom – which stars James Corden and Ruth Jones – was watched by an average of 11.6 million viewers on BBC One, meaning that around half of all TV viewers at the time tuned in to watch the programme.
The next most-watched programme was the Queen’s Christmas Broadcast, which was watched by 7.85 million people.
The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast has dominated the ratings over recent years, but viewers were evidently more excited by the return of the acclaimed comedy show.
