Gongs for Gavin

How did Gavin and Stacey slip under my radar? Essex boy meets Barry Island girl. They fall in love and plan a wedding. Perfect material for a sit-com – as anyone who’s ever been involved in the marriage merry-go-round will know.

The BBC3 series picked up three gongs at last night’s Comedy Awards so I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to catch up with it elsewhere on the Beeb at some point. I’m just kicking myself that I missed out on such gems as a wedding fair with Matt Lucas as the ultimate stag do organiser and goodness knows what else.

I blame it on the grandson. He’s just too distracting.
