Smithy and Gavin are reunited in the brand new trailer for the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special

They've been gone for a decade, but the gang are back on Christmas Day. Heaven for Gavin and Stacey fans.

Ok, we know that Gavin and Stacey revolves around a litany of romances. After all, the whole raison d'être of the show is the trials and tribulations of the titular characters, but some could argue that the real heart of the show is the relationship between Nessa and Smithy.

Then again, you can see the whole thing as a bromance and after a decade away, Gavin and Smithy have finally been reunited in the latest advert for the upcoming Christmas special.

We already saw Uncle Bryn struggling to make dinner, but now it's time to 'Step Into Christmas' thanks to a beloved bromance.

As for the plot, the BBC have released the official synopsis which states, "This year we’re off to Wales for the festivities, where Bryn’s cooking dinner for over thirteen people. Understandably he’s tense. Pam would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen’s house a bit lacking. But the deal has always been that they alternate every year, and this time it’s the turn of the Wests to host Christmas with everyone under one small roof."

As for Gavin and Stacey, it appears that parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their baby now being 10.

Smithy, too, continues to commit to his fatherly role, making the journey to Barry at weekends and every second Wednesday to see Neil the baby.

Nessa on the other hand adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering whilst Pam, Mick and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents.

We can't wait.

The Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special airs on Christmas Day.
