GAVIN and Stacey DID reveal what happened on Uncle Bryn’s fishing trip – but ditched the scene from the script before series two aired.
The BBC comedy returned for a Christmas Special on Christmas Day, achieving record viewing figures for the festive period despite a 10 year absence.
However many fans were still left wondering what on earth happened on Uncle Bryn’s fishing trip with his nephew Jason.
The mystery was never solved during the show’s original run, and just as Bryn – Rob Brydon – was finally about to tell his friends and family what actually happened during the Christmas Special, he was interrupted by the children.
But it turns out show writers Ruth Jones and James Corden had originally planned to explain the fishing trip mystery way back in series two, before changing their minds.
Lisa Edwards – who owned the house the show used as Bryn’s home – previously revealed how she still has a script of a never-aired episode.
The script had been left in their home on Trinity Street in Barry and promised to solve the show’s biggest mystery.
Speaking to Wales Online, Lisa said: “We have a script for an episode which was never aired.
“It was supposed to be Uncle Bryn and his nephew watching this VHS.
“They both watch it together to see what happened on the fishing trip. But they decided to not show the episode.”
Unfortunately the script didn’t even reveal what happened on the fishing trip, and as the episode never aired, fans remain in the dark after all these years.
The mystery began in series one at Gavin and Stacey’s wedding reception with Jason attempting to clear the air with Bryn outside the venue.
He said: “I never told anyone, you know. And besides, it wasn’t a big deal. Lots of people do it, it’s not against the law.”
Bryn replied: “Jason please, how can I ever forget that look on your face?”
But as the show continued, further information revealed by different characters only complicated the mystery further.
