Gavin & Stacey's Stacey, Joanna Page, is turning her hand to a brand new project with her own radio show.

The actress will be hosting her own programme on BBC Radio Wales on Sunday mornings from October 18 at 9.30am, which will run for six weeks. The show will be called Sunday Mornings with Joanna Page.

"I’m really excited about my new series on Radio Wales and look forward to just gossiping. Because the Welsh talk like nobody else," she said, per On the Radio.

"You can expect lots of good music, a sprinkling of showbiz, interesting stories and lots of gossip and chat.

"I’ve never done anything like this before, but we all know I’m a bit of a talker! I’m just going to imagine that I’m chatting to my best friend. You don’t know what I’m going to say – so you better tune in and listen!"

She added that fans will also get glimpses of her beloved character from the BBC sitcom, admitting: "I think listeners will probably hear quite a lot of Stacey. I think we’re similar... let’s be honest – we sound exactly the same.

"When I first got the script for Gavin & Stacey, I read it and thought, 'oh my gosh, that’s me'. So people might think they’ve got Stacey on the radio!"

But the really big question is, will we get to see more of Stacey on our screens?

Joanna's co-star Ruth Jones was rumoured to have penned new Gavin & Stacey episodes while in lockdown following the huge success of last year's Christmas special, but she thinks we may have to wait another 10 years for more.

Gavin & Stacey series 1-3 are currently available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
