Gavin & Stacey fans, assemble: Alison Steadman and Larry Lamb are channelling their inner Pam and Mick Shipman in a new travel documentary.


Alison & Larry: Billericay to Barry sees the duo 'take a trip down memory lane', traversing the iconic journey their characters made to and from Wales alongside their son Gavin and best friend Smithy.

Speaking about the series, Steadman said: "I can't wait to take this trip down memory lane to explore Pam and Mick's neck of the woods, as well as so many other locations precious to me. And who better to do it with than Larry? I'm so excited to be reunited."

Lamb added: "I am really looking forward to reminiscing with Alison while taking the trip from Billericay to Barry, it was such a huge part in the plot of Gavin & Stacey. This journey holds a special place in my heart and I hope the fans are pleased with it."

Gavin & Stacey was a huge hit for the BBC, with Alison and Larry winning over plenty of fans with their comedic performances as Gavin’s overbearing mother Pam and laid-back dad Mick.

The duo recently told Radio Times magazine they’d be up for a Gavin & Stacey return - but on the condition that it was only a special and not a full run of episodes.

Steadman said: "I’d like to do another, but I don’t know if I could do seven episodes. A special would be great fun and it wouldn’t be too draining and exhausting. The Christmas special cliffhanger ending was brilliant. I was really touched and moved by it."

Meanwhile, Lamb said: "It’s like getting the family together again, so absolutely yes to another one. But a one-hour special, which is three weeks of really intense work, that will do me."

While we wait for a special to materialise, however, read on for everything you need to know about how to watch the new documentary, which is airing on Gold.
