Bryn and Nessa perform 'Islands in the Stream' on 'Gavin and Stacey' (c) BBC Three
'Islands in the Stream' - the Kenny Rogers / Dolly Parton duet - is one of my favourite songs, and I loved seeing Bryn and Nessa performing it at Gwen's birthday party on Gavin and Stacey. Then today I heard that Ruth Jones and Rob Brydon have recorded it, in character, as this year's Comic Relief single!
Bryn and Nessa's version will be known as 'Barry Islands In The Stream' (!) and comes out on 8th March.
Tom Jones and Robin Gibb make guest appearances on the track, and in the video too (filmed at the World Karaoke Championships in Las Vegas) where apparently it's hinted that Nessa and Tom are old flames! I won't lie to you, I'm really looking forward to seeing it, I am!
