Christmas decorations could clearly be seen adorning the terraced houses of Barry in preparation for the festive special.

Large crowds gathered to watch scenes being shot, which appeared to involve the car.

Corden had already been spotted on set for the one-off episode, which will be aired on Christmas Day.

The host of The Late Late Show penned the comedy series with Welsh performer Ruth Jones.

Mathew Horne and Joanna Page star in the roles of Gavin and Stacey in the tale of family and romance, with English and Welsh worlds colliding.
