Gavin and Stacey star ‘almost divorced as couple stopped having sex in lockdown’

Gavin and Stacey star Joanna Page nearly divorced her husband in lockdown after they stopped having sex.

Similar to her onscreen storyline, where Mat Horne and Jo’s characters go through relationship turmoil, Joanna says her relationship lacked intimacy.

Joanna and husband James Thornton have three children together between the ages of four and seven.

She says the intimacy has dipped because of the youngsters.

She told The Sun: “We spent the whole of the first lockdown arguing and threatening to divorce each other.

“Then we went through a month of literally not saying a single word to each other.

“We came out of that a bit numb and deadened and desperate for anything we could get because we just argued so much.

“‘Let’s get some sex in before we have to pick the kids up from school’ — that’s how desperate we’d got.”

The 43-year-old has been married to her actor hubby for 17 years.

The couple are parents to Eva, seven, Kit, five, and Noah, four.

She also said: “I’m sure all parents found it really difficult during lockdown.

“You’re with the children so much, and then at night-time they all just wanted to sleep in bed with us.

“So you were going through a 24-hour cycle having no break from them at all.

“At night-time one wanted to lie on that side holding that boob, the other one wanted to lie on this side holding this boob and then my third little one just wanted to lie down the whole of my body. So I was there going, ‘Oh my God, please, I just want a bit of space’.

“When we managed to get them back to school that was a godsend because at least me and my husband could talk to each other and reunite and then I could fancy him.”

Gavin and Stacey creator James Corden has confirmed that the popular BBC series will return however it is not known when.
