Gavin And Stacey Premieres on UKTV

UKTV – Fridays from 4 September, 8.30pm

With long distance love, it’s never as simple as boy meets girl. If only it were just the two of them. This is a warm-hearted contemporary comedy about two young people who refuse to let the miles between them stand in the way of true love. Gavin is an ordinary boy from Billericay, Essex in south-east England. Stacey is an ordinary girl from Barry Island, south Wales. For months, they have spoken every day on the phone at work, and yet they have never met. After countless conversations long-distance, Gavin and Stacey have become quite obsessed with each other: Stacey’s desk is littered with photos of Gavin, and Gavin has been counting the days until he will finally get to meet his Barry Island babe in the flesh. But when Gavin and Stacey finally meet and their ordinary worlds come together, we see – through their families, their friends and their differences – that there is no such thing as ‘ordinary’ after all. Will the course of true love run smoothly for our lovebirds, or will their family, friends and acquaintances bring everything crashing down? Written by and starring James Corden (The History Boys, Little Britain) and Ruth Jones (Nighty Night, Saxondale, Little Britain) and also starring: Mathew Horne (The Catherine Tate Show, Roman’s Empire, Teachers), Joanna Page (Gideon’s Daughter, Love Actually, The Cazalets), Alison Steadman (Life Is Sweet, The Worst Week of My Life, Confetti), Rob Brydon (Marion and Geoff, Supernova, Human Remains).
