Following the VERY exciting news that Gavin and Stacey will indeed be returning for a brand new Christmas special this year, fans have taken to social media to ask one particular question.

The beloved sitcom, created by and starring James Corden and Ruth Jones, will come to a conclusion in 2024 with one last episode, as announced by Corden today. He wrote on Instagram: “Some news… It’s official!!! We have finished writing the last ever episode of Gavin and Stacey. See you on Christmas Day, BBC One. Love Ruth and James ❤️”

The previous episode, 2019’s Christmas special, ended on a cliffhanger, with Jones’ character Nessa asking Corden’s Smithy to marry him, but there was another unresolved storyline that fans are hoping will be addressed.

Yep… people want to know what happened on THAT fishing trip! 

As fans of the comedy will know, something happened between Uncle Bryn (Rob Brydon) and his nephew Jason (Robert Wilfort) when they went on a fishing trip together. However, they have never revealed what went down (although Dave Coaches knows some details). 

Bryn came close to revealing the details at various points over the course of the three series, and he almost spilled the beans in the 2019 festive episode before being interrupted. Now, fans are seeing the last ever episode as one final opportunity to find out what occurred.

Taking to social media, one commenter wrote: “If we don't find out what happens on that fishing trip I'll be fuming.”

Another added: “Do Smithy & Nessa get married? And more importantly, will we eventually find out what happened on the fishing trip?”

Someone else asked: “But will we ever find out what happened on that fishing trip? 🎣”

“If we don't find out what happened on the fishing trip, WE RIOT!!!!!!!!” another added.

However, one fan somewhat sagely said: “If you’re going into this expecting them to reveal what happened on the fishing trip, you don’t understand the joke.”

Another person agreed, saying: “We shouldn’t know what happened on the fishing trip - that’s the beauty of G&S, lots of unanswered questions which makes it funny.”

Following three massively popular series and a Christmas special between 2007 and 2010, the BAFTA-winning show returned for a one-off Christmas episode in 2019. Now, fans will finally get to say one last goodbye to Gav, Stace, Three Steaks Pam, Mick, Gwen and the rest of the gang at Christmas.
