Pack your pyjamas for the Gavin and Stacey guided tour - it's 11 hours long...

What's occuring? A very long coach journey, with a possible spot of travel sickness, that's what. Inventive entrepreneurs (or shameless barrel scrapers) have devised a Gavin and Stacey tour, taking in all the sights made famous by the show - between Essex and Barry.

Highlights include, '...the Italian restaurant where Smithy discovers he's the father of Nessa's baby, the venue for Gwen's birthday barn dance and the amusement arcade where Nessa works. It will also stop off at the M4 service station where Smithy stopped on his drives from Essex to Barry.'

The Director of the tour company said, 'Gavin & Stacey is one of those shows that really tugged at the heartstrings and it was done so naturalistically that it made the viewers feel like they actually knew these people. We only need 10 on board to make each trip viable, and we'll keep putting it on provided we don't start making a loss. I don't think there’s any danger of that though - Gavin & Stacey has some pretty dedicated fans who aren't going to be deterred by the 11-hour duration.'
