Ruth Jones has ruled out another series of Gavin And Stacey - and said a US version may not happen either.

The Welsh actress starred in and co-wrote the hit BBC comedy show, which ran for three series and last aired on New Year's Day 2010, and according to recent reports a Stateside version is imminent.

But Ruth said: "Right, I'm going to go on the record with this. There is not even a (US) pilot being made. A script's been commissioned, might not even go to pilot and it's the third time it's happened and I have no idea why all of a sudden it's all over the press.

"NBC had a script made of it, ABC had a script and it was going to pilot it and then dropped it and now Fox have commissioned a script and that's all."

She went on: "And I read in the press apparently I'm making five million pounds. Can I just go on record as saying I am not making five million pounds. So to all my family and friends who think they might be getting a really nice Christmas present this year sorry, nada, isn't going to happen...

"All I want to do is stamp out this idea that there's going to be American Gavin And Stacey. I mean it could happen but then I could win the lottery. It's literally like that at the moment."

Ruth - now who stars in Sky1 comedy drama Stella - also insisted there would be no revival of the UK version.

"There is going to be no more Gavin And Stacey," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
