Former Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page will be part of the cast for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

The news comes after it was confirmed last week that David Tennant and Billie Piper will also return for the Doctor Who special.

The three actors join Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and John Hurt for the episode, which begins filming this week.

Page, who recently gave birth to her first child, is seen here at the read-through for the episode with David Tennant, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith.

The BBC is yet to announce which character Page will play.

The actress was linked to the show in 2010 and said at the time: “I think I’ve got to be the only Welsh actress who has never been in Doctor Who so if someone would like me to be in Doctor Who I would love the part.”
