The first episode of beloved sitcom Gavin and Stacey aired on BBC One last night and fans couldn’t get enough.
The series is one of several classic BBC shows that will be replayed by the broadcaster to help lift spirits during this difficult and strange time.
Gavin and Stacey became a trending topic on Twitter as people voiced their excitement to see the series back on TV, reuniting with its iconic characters and taking a nostalgic trip back to better days.
Can we all just agree that #GavinandStacey is genuinely the best programme created

Buzzing that #GavinAndStacey was on BBC – whenever I feel a bit down, I watch Gavin and Stacey and it just makes me smile… I’ve seen it probably 300+ times (no exaggeration!)

Some fans were also taken by the novelty of certain things that were normal at the time but wouldn’t be allowed today, such as smoking in nightclubs or leaving the house for non-essential purposes…

Of course, while revisiting the first series is a lot of fun, it won’t be enough to satisfy fan demands for brand new episodes and a resolution to the jaw-dropping cliffhanger from the recent Christmas special.
