Gavin and Stacey fans collectively rejoiced earlier this month when it was revealed that the show would be hitting our screens once more.
Nearly a decade since the show last aired, writers Ruth Jones and James Corden confirmed that there will be a one-off Christmas special.
Filming for the much-loved BBC sitcom has already begun in Barry, South Wales.
However, not everyone is happy about it.
According to the Mirror, neighbours living on Trinity street where the comedy is filmed have complained about crowds and bright lights keeping them up until 3am.
They have also claimed to have had rubbish thrown in their gardens by swarming crowds of fans who have gathered in a bid to catch a glimpse of the show’s stars, including James Corden and Ruth Jones.
One neighbour told the publication: “They are filming all through the night using spotlights that keep me up.
“I took a picture at 3am and you can see the crew and Ruth Jones milling about.
“Fans lounge on neighbours cars and our walls.
“This weekend we had people throwing rubbish into our gardens. Every person in this street is unhappy.”
Another neighbour said: “It’s mad. People are still outside at 3am.”
While a third called for measures to be put in place to “stop fans using our walls as stepping stones to try to view the action.”
The show will feature all the fan favourites including Cordon, who plays Smithy, and Jones, who plays Nessa, as well as Mathew Horne and Joanna Page as Gavin and Stacey and Rob Brydon, who plays Bryn.
Regarding the complaints, a BBC spokesperson said: “Gavin and Stacey is a hugely popular show and we anticipated that there would be a lot of interest and excitement around the special.
“The locations team have worked hard to make sure any disruption is kept to a minimum, and will personally follow up with any individual concerns and thank everybody in Barry for their support.”
