Book Overview

Gavin & Stacey (plus friends) take you on a tour of their home towns, showing you the world of their hit BBC comedy series as you’ve never seen it before.

‘Oh, the guilt. She (Nessa) stuck things in…oh…look can you ask Stacey coz’ if it’s a Welsh thing I don’t have to see a doctor.’ Smithy

If only it was just the two of them.

Gavin is an ordinary boy from Essex. Stacey is an ordinary girl from South Wales. The result is a double BAFTA award winning hit BBC comedy that has become the biggest show since Phoenix Nights and Little Britain.

  • “It seems like every TV programme on the box is releasing a cash-in – sorry, we mean tie-in – book. But while the majority are cheaply put together, badly written and – frankly – dull, Gavin and Stacey: From Barry to Billericay is the work of James Corden and Ruth Jones and is just as funny and endearing as any episode…So, if you do find this in your stocking come Christmas morning, there’s plenty to keep you entertained far beyond Boxing Day.” Heat
  • “The crew take you on a tour of their homes with diaries, Facebook pages, Smithy’s “Cruise, marry or shag” quiz, Bryn’s Top 10 Things To Do Before You Die (“send an email”) and top nights out in Billericay.***** “ Zoo
