The crackin' quiz will take place to Bar and Beyond in Prince of Wales Road on Sunday, February 23 from 7pm, with five rounds of trivia and a tidy jackpot of £80 for the winning team - enough to buy plenty of Celebrations tubs.

The rounds include a general knowledge and picture one, with the rest to be revealed on the night, and the questions vary in difficulty to suit those that have seen it a couple of times and also the superfans.

The event follows the success of the Friends quiz held at the bar in September, run by the same company, and there will also be music from the show including Nessa and Bryn's cover of Islands in the Stream.

Gregg Wilson, from Yellow Elephant Promotions who run the event, said: "We decided to launch the Gavin and Stacey night on the back of the Christmas special and started the tour at the start of December and have already been to 60 venues across the UK and Ireland and the majority have sold out.

"Gavin and Stacey is such a wholesome programme and the reaction to the event has been really positive."

The Christmas Special was the most watched show of the 2010s, with over 17 million people tuning in to the comeback episode, filmed a decade since the last series.

The sitcom follows Gavin and Stacey, who are from Billericay in Essex and Barry from Wales respectively, who fall in love but distance and family interference threatens their relationship and stars James Corden, Ruth Jones, Matthew Horne, Larry Lamb and Joanna Page.
