[via press release from BBC America]

*** SPOILER ALERT***

GAVIN & STACEY ARE GETTING MARRIED

-BBC AMERICA's hit comedy, Gavin & Stacey continue to make audiences fall in love -

BBC AMERICA's new hit comedy, Gavin & Stacey, premiered in August to rave reviews with The New York Times calling it �the most endearing comedy about love to come to television since the Manolos were packed up and put away� and The Los Angeles Times saying �Gavin & Stacey is a gem of a show -- funny, touching and welcome proof that the romantic comedy can and will survive irony, Botox, Judd Apatow and all the vagaries of the modern age.�

A double BAFTA award-winning comedy written by, and starring, Ruth Jones and James Corden, Gavin & Stacey is a beautifully observed series that follows the trials and tribulations of two young lovers, as they embark on a whirlwind romance that brings their nations, and unusual families, crashing together. Now coming up to its sixth episode, rounding out Season One and jumping right into Season Two, comes the day viewers have been waiting for - Gavin and Stacey's wedding. Yet bringing their two wacky families together never goes quite as planned and threatens to derail the day. Tune in to see if the wedding actually takes place.

Gavin & Stacey Season One finale airs Tuesday, September 30, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT and Season Two premieres Tuesday, October 7, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

***SPOILER ALERTS***

EPISODE SYNOPSES

Episode 6- SEASON ONE FINALE

The day of Gavin and Stacey's wedding has finally arrived, and their families are beside themselves with excitement and pride. Smithy attempts to deliver the definitive Best Man's speech, but it doesn't go quite to plan. Uncle Bryn is still acting strangely around Stacey's brother Jason, and Nessa isn't herself - will she spill the beans on her big secret? More importantly, will the wedding actually take place?

Episode 6 premieres Tuesday, September 30, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 7- SEASON TWO U.S. PREMIERE

Three weeks after their wedding, Gavin and Stacey return from honeymoon and travel to Gavin's family home in England, where they will be living until they get their own place. Gwen and Bryn travel to Gavin's hometown to see the newly-weds, with Nessa following close behind in a seven-ton truck full of Stacey's belongings. Smithy arrives, clearly upset that Gavin didn't call him during his honeymoon (or �vacation� as Smithy prefers to call it). The families decide to celebrate by going to Gavin's local Italian restaurant where they discover Mick and Pamela's friends, Dawn and Pete, having a meal with a Ghanaian man they hope to introduce to their �bedroom�. The evening goes well until Stacey discovers that Nessa hasn't told Smithy he is the father of her unborn child. Gradually, more and more diners find out about the pregnancy until, eventually, Nessa tells the last person to know � Smithy.

Episode 7 premieres Tuesday, October 7, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 8

Reeling from Nessa's revelation and unable to handle the news, Smithy flees the restaurant. While Gavin, Mick and Bryn try to find him, Stacey is upset to find out that her mom has redecorated her old bedroom, and it finally sinks in that her home is now at Pamela and Mick's. After calling on Smithy's sister (who works in a fast-food drive-thru), the lads manage to track down a pensive Smithy at the golf driving range and convince him to come back and stand by Nessa. She, however, is reluctant to have Smithy involved with her child, but eventually agrees that he can come with her for a scan. Stacey gets upset again when she finds out that all her possessions have been brought to England in the back of Nessa's truck. When her family leaves to head home, she feels she should be with them and her pregnant best friend in Wales.

Episode 8 premieres Tuesday, October 14, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 9

Stacey is upset because she can't get a job. Smithy needs Gavin's shoulder to cry on because his girlfriend broke up with him over Nessa's pregnancy and told him she was seeing a younger man anyway. Gavin, Stacey and Smithy head for Wales so that Smithy can go with Nessa for her scan. Smithy lodges with Bryn, who has turned his spare room into a gym and sets about getting Smithy into shape. Gavin and Stacey accompany Nessa and Smithy to the hospital. Seeing the image of their child for the very first time really drives home the reality of the situation for the young parents-to-be.

Episode 9 premieres Tuesday, October 21, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 10

Everyone is very excited that Mick is going to be interviewed on television after discovering a body near his workplace. But, when the families all sit down to watch, there is massive disappointment � Mick's interview has been cut down to just a few seconds. Stacey is miserable and homesick because she still hasn't got a job, or her own home. She feels she's getting under everyone's feet, especially when Pamela interrupts during her shower. Gavin tries to console her, but she says he just doesn't understand. Pamela admits to Dawn that having the newlyweds staying in her house is getting a bit much. (Dawn and Pete are still looking for a threesome.) Gavin and Stacey go to view a potential apartment and are shown around a tiny, dirty studio by over-enthusiastic realtor Duncan (Marc Wootton). Nessa travels to England and joins Smithy, Gavin and Stacey for a night of tenpin bowling. Gavin and Stacey spend the night arguing and Nessa and Smithy end the night, once again, in the throes of passion.

Episode 10 premieres Tuesday, October 28, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

There will be a break for Election week

Episode 11

Stacey and Gavin are still in conflict over where they should live, with Gavin refusing to consider the idea of living in Wales. Smithy admits to Gavin that he had another fling with Nessa and realizes that he will need to face her again at the surprise party Bryn is throwing for Gwen. Bryn is panicking because he wants to keep the party a surprise, but he's also having trouble getting enough people to attend. Stacey thinks she's going down early with Gavin to help Bryn, but finds out that Gavin intends to travel later with Smithy. They argue again and Stacey heads to Wales, alone, by train. The surprise party is a great success to the relief of Bryn, but Smithy's meeting with Nessa is awkward as she is sitting with her old flame Dave, the coach driver. Gavin and Stacey argue again, but this time it's serious - she's not going back to England with him.

Episode 11 premieres Tuesday, November 11, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 12

After falling out at Gwen's surprise party, Gavin and Stacey are still living apart in their respective home towns. Pamela is annoyed about plans for a new phone mast to be erected near their house and is planning a demonstration at the site. Pamela is also concerned about Gavin and gets Mick to phone Gwen to find out how Stacey is doing. Nessa is earning some money on the side by performing as a living statue on the street. Gavin seeks counseling for his marriage troubles from Smithy, but Smithy's idea of relationship therapy is to organize a surprise guy's night out at a nightclub foam party. While the guys are knee deep in foam, Stacey is with her family at a bingo night. Neither she, nor Gavin, are enjoying their evening out and keep checking their phones to see if the other one has called. Eventually, Gavin can't carry on without calling Stacey. They speak - and make up again.

Episode 12 premieres Tuesday, November 18, 8:40p.m. ET/PT

Episode 13

Stacey travels to England and back into the arms of Gavin. Everything is perfect until Pamela and Mick offer to cover the deposit on a house for the young couple. Stacey tells Gavin that it can't work between them because they both need to live in their own towns. If they were truly meant to be together, this wouldn't matter, they wouldn't even think about it - but that clearly isn't the case. She gives him her wedding ring back. Back in Wales, Nessa is going into labor - with Bryn and Gwen at hand. Pamela tells Gavin and Stacey and the hunt to find Smithy begins. Eventually they find him in a pub watching soccer and Gavin and Smithy head for Wales. It looks like Smithy may miss the birth as they don't have the right money for the toll bridge. After failing to convince the toll booth attendant to let them pass, they lift the barrier, but are stopped by the police. Eventually they get back on their way and arrive at the hospital to see Nessa with the newborn in her arms. All family members come into the room to see the baby, and Gavin and Stacey fall into each other's arms. Stacey is wearing her wedding ring again.

Episode 13 premieres Tuesday, November 25, 8:40p.m. ET/PT
