The co-creators and co-stars of Bafta-winning Gavin & Stacey have revealed there may not be another series of the hit BBC3 sitcom.
James Corden and Ruth Jones, who write the show and play Gavin and Stacey's best mates Nessa and Smithy on screen, said they were currently working on a Christmas special of the show.
"We never intended to write a second series let alone a third," said Jones. "We don't want it to become predictable. We will see how the Christmas special goes and take it from there."
Corden added: "We will write one if we can make it better. We have to be true to ourselves."
BBC3's biggest breakout comedy hit since Little Britain, Gavin and Stacey won the Sky+ audience award for programme of the year at last night's Bafta TV awards.
The only Bafta voted for by the public, it beat rival nominations including The Apprentice, Strictly Come Dancing, and Britain's Got Talent.
Corden also won the Bafta for best comedy performance, beating Peter Capaldi, Stephen Merchant and David Mitchell.
Picking up his award, Corden said Jones was "not just the greatest writer and actress, she is the best friend anyone could hope for and is as much Smithy as I am, and I share this with her".
Produced by Steve Coogan's independent production company Baby Cow, Gavin & Stacey also stars Rob Brydon and Alison Steadman.
The BBC3 show has already picked up Broadcasting Press Guild and South Bank Show awards, as well as three prizes at the British Comedy Awards.
If Gavin & Stacey did come to an end, it would follow the same path as both Extras and The Office, which also finished after two series and a Christmas special.
