Ruth Jones has shut down the idea of herself and James Corden writing any more episodes of Gavin & Stacey after making a shock return for a Christmas special last year.

On Friday, the Welsh actress, 54, who plays Nessa in the comedy, told This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes, 60, and Ruth Langsford, also 60, that there aren't any plans to give fans the answer to 2019’s major cliffhanger.

The special saw up to 18 million people tune in to see Nessa go down on one knee to pop the question to Smithy, who is played by her co-writer, James, 42.

While fans are desperate to see the future for Nessa and Smithy, Ruth confirmed today that there "aren't any plans to write more Gavin & Stacey."

Ruth said to the BBC star: "You did leave us hanging. There's got to be another one coming, surely?"

She then responded with: "There aren't any plans to write anything. Obviously James is in America, I'm in Wales. I'm sorry to not give you any good news.”

The best-selling author continued: “I think the joy of the Christmas special that it ended in such a way that if we never go back to Barry we will always wonder what happened.

"I think there's something juicy about that. But we will always wonder, did Smithy say yes, did they get married. I quite like leaving it hanging."

While watching the daytime show today, many devastated fans waded in to express their disappointment over Ruth’s comments.

One penned: “Vanessa shanessa Jenkins has just confirmed on this morning there aren't any plans for more Gavin and Stacey and it has absolutely ruined my Friday.”

Another agreed by writing: “@thismorning I SAW THAT ON FACEBOOK THAT THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE MORE GAVIN AND STACEY TELL ME THAT IT'S TRUE (obvs it isn’t as Ruth just said).”

The author’s announcement comes after the BBC vaguely said the programme will make a comeback "one day”.

Ruth opened up as she spoke to Eamonn and Ruth about her new book, Us Three.

Oscar Hartland, who plays Nessa and Smithy's son Neil, recently said he would say yes to a return when he appeared on Good Morning Britain.

He discussed: “Me, I would love it to happen. It really depends what other people think about it and whether they like it or not."
