Gavin & Stacey previously ran for three seasons including one other Christmas Special. The series ended in 2010 and Corden and Jones had previously distanced themselves from the show stating no plans to return.
In a joint statement, Corden and Jones - who also stars in the show - said: "Over the last ten years we've talked a lot about Gavin and Stacey - where they might be today and what their lives might look like. And so in secret we took the plunge and wrote this one hour special. We've loved revisiting Barry and Essex again, and bringing the characters back together has been a joy."
"We're so excited to get the chance to work with our fabulous cast and crew once more and to give fans of the show a festive treat this Christmas."
