Ruth Jones plans Stella festive special

Ruth Jones is planning to do a 'Stella' Christmas special.

The 49-year-old comedian has shot down rumours her hilarious Sky1 drama, in which she plays the titular lovable nurse, is coming to an end after the new series, and has hinted a festive episode could also in the pipeline this year.

Speaking on 'Lorraine' this morning (12.01.16), she said: "I'm so cross people are saying that [this will be the last series] because we've never said it's the end.

"Basically, we're taking a break because normally we have to start storylines when we're recording the previous series and we've got a couple of things we're working on.

"But we're hoping that we're going to be doing a Christmas special this year so it's definitely not the end of 'Stella.' "

The brunette beauty was initially planning to take a short break from acting in order to focus on writing but she has now been roped into playing a vampire in a forthcoming project.

She explained: "I was going to take a little break from acting because of the writing with these other projects but I was sent this script from Jason Flemyng. I read the script and I thought, 'Oh my God, I've got to do it.' It's a cameo; it's not a big part at all. But it's a brilliant script and yeah, a vampire part."
