King's Square was packed last night to witness Gavin and Stacey's legendary Nessa switch on the Christmas lights.
Thousands braved the cold to attend the event hosted by Bro Radio's own Nathan and Patrick and were not left disappointed, with some excellent music from "12Bore" and Rock Choir, as well some crackin' lines during the main event from Ruth Jones' iconic character.

Addressing her enraptured audience of around 8,000 Nessa said, "It says something about Barry doesn't it; that you're not at home watching something educational on the telly. You're just hanging out in the town square, getting drunk, making fools of yourselves... You makes me very proud".
Of course Nessa's appearance comes ahead of the highly anticipated Gavin and Stacey Christmas special, filmed locally earlier this year.
It's been almost ten years since the beloved sitcom was last on our screens, with the last episode being broadcast on New Year's Day 2010, and fans are desperate to know what the gang are up to these days. Fortunately we don't have to wait too much longer with the Christmas special scheduled to go out on the 25th December.
