Firstly - don't you just love it? I can watch it again and again and it always makes me laugh. Earlier we had Bryn saying "Fee Fi Fo Fum" and then "Joking, I am - I'm not really a giant".

Secondly - why is Owain Hughes funny?

Thirdly - Ness was nearly in All Saints, drove trucks for Eddie Stobart, worked in Bollywood and nannied for Richard and Judy. What else?

Ow Hassled what's occurring.

Firstly yes I love it too

Secondly, haven't got a clue!

Thirdly, can't think of any off the top of my head but there are loads

Tidy.

I was watching this evening. i love Dawn's vows - 'Pete, most people would turn you away' grin

Didn't Ness date John Prescott and there was also something to do with Noel from Hearsay.. Ooh - and she 's doing the stock market in one episode...

Ness worked with Kate Adie. Selfish.

I thought the joke was Owain Hughes sounds like do you "owe Wayne Hughes" hence he says before you ask no I don't. grin

SavoyCabbage Fri 02-Aug-13 08:38:29

Didn't she also work at 'second hand city'?

It's brilliant , over and over again but never boring.

I love Pam, my favourite character!

Nessa had a thing with Tom Jones and Russell Brand.

MiaWallace Fri 02-Aug-13 08:48:04

She worked for BBC as she talks about Kate Adie when Mick is on the news for 3 seconds.

I love it, have been watching it every night for the last week or so.

I don't think Owain Hughes is a joke really, it's a bit like the fishing trip grin

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 08:59:21

Bryn a great character,and I love Doris.

Trazzletoes Fri 02-Aug-13 09:01:05

I've tried to watch it. Really, I have. I just don't get why it's so so so funny sad. Maybe it's because I'm from Billericay.

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 09:04:42

Needs shared a house with Noel from Hearsay.

I really love the scene where the real John Prescott actually turns up at Nessa's wedding, you suddenly realise that all her stories are true grin

usualsuspect Fri 02-Aug-13 09:05:12

Nessa*

Quaffle Fri 02-Aug-13 09:05:36

Nessa also had a fling with Dodi Fayad didn't she?

I love it too. Nessa and Smithy are my favourites. I didnt see it when it was on tv but got all the episodes cheap in CEX and I think its one of my best buys. Dh loves it too.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Gavin and Stacey - it's totally genius.

Uncle Bryn is adorable. In fact there's not a character in it who's not fab in their own way.

Quaffle - also John Prescott, Nigel Havers and all of Goldie Lookin' Chain. grin

crumpet Fri 02-Aug-13 09:36:47

Ddn't Ness turn down Nigel Havers too?

Hassled Fri 02-Aug-13 09:41:37

Ahh - do you owe Wayne Hughes? I see. Except - is Wayne Hughes someone famous?

Tidy to see so many fellow fans - it's my comfort telly at the moment. There really does seem to be no limit to how many times I can watch the same episode.

I'd forgotten about Dodi Fayed and Nigel Havers. She also lived with Goldie Looking Chain for a while, didn't she? And apart from being a bowling pro, wasn't she also some Martial Arts expert?

What did happen on that fishing trip grin

TheRealFellatio Fri 02-Aug-13 09:46:30

I love the bit where she's in the bath and she calls Stacey in, hands her a razor and says 'can you do my back?' grin

And Pammy. 'on my Christ!' grin I just love everything about it.
