New sitcom set in Llanbobl

Rhod Gilbert is recording a new sitcom for Radio 2.

The Welsh comic has written the show, Return Of The Native, with fellow stand-up Greg Davies, and a pilot will be taped next month.

The show is based in Llanbobl, the fictional Welsh village where he has based stand-up routines, and sees him returning to his family home to repair the damage done by his mother leaving his father and brother.

The show will air on December 27. Visit our free tickets page to attend the recording in BBC Broadcasting House on December 3.
