Gavin and Stacey star and creator Ruth Jones featured on a celebrity addition of the Who Want's to be a millionaire last night (5th).

The star played on behalf of Sully based hospice Ty Hafan, which supports children and families facing life limiting conditions.

The Hospice, which has supported 840 families over the last 20 years is aiming to raise £1.5 million to refurbish the hospice to make it fit for the future.

During her appearance, Ruth Jones was quizzed by Jeremy Clarkson on the female James Bond debate, in a bid to try and buy herself time.

Known best for her role as Nessa in the BBC One Comedy Series, the actress was stumped when she was asked the final line Daniel Craig said in a James Bond film, and so instead tried to have a chat to avoid answering.

Both Ruth and Jeremy admitted that they didn't really like the bond movies, with Jeremy adding that they'd "gone off badly over the past few years".

Despite delaying answering, Ruth's final answer was incorrect. Thankfully, by using her safety net she was still able to take home £16,000 for Sully based charity Ty Hafan.

Her appearance, followed the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special which was watched by a combined audience of over 17.1 million people on live TV + BBC iPlayer.

The figures make it the most watched Christmas TV moment since 2008.
