    Where does Rhys live, then? That line reminded me of Timothy Spall playing Barry the Radish in Auf Wiedersehn, Pet asking two girls "Do you want to come back to our hut?"

    Or someone I knew who asked a girl "Do you want to go out for a pizza and a cormorant?"

    I think Rhys lives in Neil's old mobile home, now beached on a landfill site off the bypass and surrounded by travellers with studded-collar dogs. Inside, it has posters of JPR Williams, Barry John, JJ Williams, Ray Gravell, Gareth Edwards etc and a mountain of old pizza containers. The bed has a duvet with Ivor the Engine on and there is a collapsed inflatable leek in the shower. The door-bell plays a recording of "Oggy, Oggy, Oggy."

    Fallon should be fine and dandy there.

    Where does Rhys live, then?  Flat above the Shop - ah all is clear, Fallon will move in, Rhys can move out back to Wales - Fallon gets the pad, we get rid of the Big Bore

    That reminds me of that tune from Aladdin.

    Rhys lives in the Tardis above the shop, where the skirting-boards are so vast an expanse that it took two days to put a coat of paint onto them.

    Surely you remember the cringeworthy flat-warming party, at which Rhys told "jokes" and giggled a lot, and organised a drinking game about which the scriptwriter was completely coy.

    Let me surprisee you: that episode was written by Tim Stimpson.

    Though in fairness to him he did report that there was some cheese left in the fridge, which I found quite funny.

    If there are vast expanses of skirting board, this could be a job opportunity for Emmur to apply her specialist skirting board skills - which were so cruelly turned down by Ruth.

    Of course, Chris, how could I forget seeing it featured in Escape to the Country? Bet the interior decor is as I described it, though.

    We Welsh are a little obsessive at times. When my Grandad died and we had to sort out his things, we found a secret drawer in the bureau. There was a bundle of papers inside. Deed to Darien gold mine? Unpublished manuscript of The Mabinogion? No: a complete run of Newport County programmes since the mid 1930s. We still have them.

    Wonder where the mobile home is, though. There are a few Ambridgeites who might be needing it soon. Matt? Ed and co?
