Catherine Tate’s Nan Is Getting Her Own Film Featuring 'Gavin & Stacey' Star Mathew Horne

Catherine Tate’s Nan Is Getting Her Own Film Featuring 'Gavin & Stacey' Star Mathew Horne

The foul-mouthed 'Nan' from The Catherine Tate Show has landed her very own film called This Nan's Life with Gavin & Stacey's Mathew Horne returning as her grandson.

Joannie Taylor - the pensioner played by Catherine in her eponymous mid-noughties sketch show - has already appeared in several spin-offs of the hit BBC series, but her big screen debut will reveal earlier parts of her life we've never seen before, according to Screen Daily.

The film has a glittering cast lined up; alongside Mathew and Catherine, it will star Katherine Parkinson who played Felicity in Pirate Radio and Jen Barber from The IT Crowd.

Josie Rourke (of Mary Queen of Scots) is in the director's chair and Damian Jones (of The Iron Lady and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie) is producer.

The release date hasn't been confirmed yet (we're predicting 2020) but you can expect the usual gaffes and expletive-laden language - Catherine and her former collaborator Brett Goldstein are the writers.

Speaking earlier this year on David Tennant Does a Podcast With... Catherine said: "I've written a Nan film, which is great fun! I do think that's probably the one [character] that's got the legs to carry on."

It's the first we've heard from the naughty nan in a while. Her last appearance was on a Comic Relief sketch in 2017.

At the height of its popularity, The Catherine Tate Show, on air between 2004 and 2006, was nominated for six BAFTAs, two British Comedy Awards and an Emmy Award.

Actor Mathew, who plays Nan's grandson Jamie, was scouted by Catherine while performing at the Edinburgh Festival in 2000 during his early career.
