Gavin And Stacey is set to return to screens on Christmas Day. 

And after the final episode aired in 2010, there has been much chat about the cast and the possibility of a reunion - yet the most prevalent hubbub has surrounded an alleged feud between creator James Corden and titular star Mathew Horne.

Despite the claims, in a recent launch of the reunion episode Mathew, 41, insisted the claims were entirely made up, when asked about the 'feud' by MailOnline.

James and Mathew appeared inseparable during their heyday, when they worked closely as comedy partners, in projects including the critically-panned movie Lesbian Vampire Killers and comedy show Horne and Corden in 2009. 

Following the woeful reviews from critics, Mathew and James - who revealed they 'went from spending 263 days together in a year and from that to nothing' - the duo appeared to grow apart and were hit by feud claims. 

James went on to move to LA, where he scooped the role as host of The Late Late Show with James Corden - propelling him to A-list status. 

Despite divided claims of a rift, Mathew has now quashed the rumours and insisted they were fabricated - with no animosity in place.

When asked by MailOnline: 'After rumours of a feud, did you feel the need to address the claims when you reunited earlier this year', Mathew simply insisted the claims were made up, as he joined the whole cast except James at the press conference. 

Aside from James' absence, the glittering cast were all in place - including co-creator Ruth Jones, Joanna Page, Larry Lamb, Alison Steadman, Rob Brydon, Melanie Walters and Robert Wilfort, who discussed the reunion.

The stars confessed they were bewildered by the news that James and Ruth were planning the reunion - and even ignored texts from the duo.

Robert, who plays Stacey's brother Jason, and Melanie, who plays Gwen, confessed that they ignored the calls - believing they were pranks.

He said: 'I got this call from Los Angeles, it was James but I thought it was a scam, like the Nigerian prince trick or something.'

Meanwhile Robert's on-screen mum Melanie echoed:
