“I’m like everyone else, because they don’t tell us!” she says. “They never told us they were doing anything, so it’s only when you get a phone call and they say, ‘There’s a special, do you want to do it?’

“I’m just not that kind of person. I always thought ‘we’ll wait and see and if there is, there is and if there isn’t, there isn’t,'” she continued. .

Although she said she would “love” to reprise her role, Page added, “Over time, I started to think, ‘Well, maybe it’s been too long? there will be no other.

“It makes me sad, because I would like to do another one. If they do, I hope they hurry because we are all getting older,” she concluded.

Earlier this year, co-creator and co-writer Corden dampened viewers’ hopes by revealing the decision wasn’t “solely” his, but offered encouragement following his departure from The late show.

“I wish I could say it’s up to me,” he said. “The best thing about Gavin and Stacey it’s Ruth and me; if I’m completely honest, his judgment is exceptional. I’m going to have a bit more free time starting next year and that will open up time for us to just be together.
