Gavin And Stacey EXCLUSIVE: ‘It’s made up!’ Mathew Horne SLAMS James Corden feud claims

Gavin And Stacey is set to return to screens on Christmas Day. 

And after the final episode aired in 2010, there has been much chat about the cast and the possibility of a reunion – yet the most prevalent hubbub has surrounded an alleged feud between creator James Corden and titular star Mathew Horne.

Despite the claims, in a recent launch of the reunion episode Mathew, 41, insisted the claims were entirely made up, when asked about the ‘feud’ by MailOnline.

James and Mathew appeared inseparable during their heyday, when they worked closely as comedy partners, in projects including the critically-panned movie Lesbian Vampire Killers and comedy show Horne and Corden in 2009. 

Following the woeful reviews from critics, Mathew and James – who revealed they ‘went from spending 263 days together in a year and from that to nothing’ – the duo appeared to grow apart and were hit by feud claims. 

James went on to move to LA, where he scooped the role as host of The Late Late Show with James Corden – propelling him to A-list status. 

Despite divided claims of a rift, Mathew has now quashed the rumours and insisted they were fabricated – with no animosity in place.

When asked by MailOnline: ‘After rumours of a feud, did you feel the need to address the claims when you reunited earlier this year’, Mathew simply insisted the claims were made up, as he joined the whole cast except James at the press conference. 

Aside from James’ absence, the glittering cast were all in place – including co-creator Ruth Jones, Joanna Page, Larry Lamb, Alison Steadman, Rob Brydon, Melanie Walters and Robert Wilfort, who discussed the reunion.

The stars confessed they were bewildered by the news that James and Ruth were planning the reunion – and even ignored texts from the duo.

Robert, who plays Stacey’s brother Jason, and Melanie, who plays Gwen, confessed that they ignored the calls – believing they were pranks.

He said: ‘I got this call from Los Angeles, it was James but I thought it was a scam, like the Nigerian prince trick or something.’

Meanwhile Robert’s on-screen mum Melanie echoed: ‘James text me. And the way he phrased the text was: “It’s James Corden here Mel, you may remember me”. I just thought I was being trolled. I just completely ignored it…

‘Then he rang and it was a weird number, and so I completely ignored it again. It was around the fourth time, he actually left a voicemail, and I finally realised it was him…

‘Ruth just got in touch with me on every form of social media, email, message, everything. And I’m not very good at getting back in touch with people, I’m absolutely terrible. So I didn’t respond for a bit because I was busy with the kids.’ 

On-screen couple Mathew and Joanna were feeling playful while referencing the show, as she insisted: ‘I have a healthy sex life’, before he claimed: ‘I don’t’.

After creating the show together, Ruth admitted she was overjoyed to be back with James, saying: ‘We can argue, don’t get me wrong, we have a very brother and sisterly relationship, but our friendship at the heart of it is so strong…

‘I am so proud of our friendship and the journey that we’ve been on together.’

Arguably one of the most beloved characters on the show is Ruth”s character Nessa, who she admits she loved returning to.   

She said: ‘I just absolutely adore Nessa, because when I’m playing her, I just feel so brave. When we were filming, and needed everyone to be quiet, I was able to go out there and as Nessa and yell: “Oh, we’re trying to film in there, now come on. Have some respect’.’ 

While the show is naturally full of laughs, it was with a heavy heart that the episode was dedicated to cheeky character Doris, played by Margaret John, who tragically passed away aged 84 after the third series.
