METRO: You’re doing a new sketch show. Does this mean you have killed off Gavin And Stacey?
CORDEN: It doesn’t mean anything of the sort. This is something else [G&S co-star] Matt Horne and I are having a stab at and, fingers crossed, it will be good. Sketch shows are so hard to do, creatively. Gavin & Stacey has a narrative story whereas a sketch show is either funny or it isn’t.
M: How much input did you have on the Gavin & Stacey book?
C: Well, we wrote it.
M: Did posing in your underpants for Heat win you any new fans?
C: I don’t think so, it probably put quite a lot of people off but it was fun to do.
M: Have you seen Keira Knightley since the award presentation when you claimed to have been shagging her for three days?
C: No, I haven’t spoken to her but she’s a very good friend of a very good friend of mine. I’ve heard she thought it was funny.
