Rhod Gilbert has revealed that he intends his long-awaited sitcom to be a cross between Gavin & Stacey and Father Ted.
And, while he’s aiming for the show to hit our screens in 2015, the Carmarthen stand-up added that he’s become so obsessed with writing it that he might have three series worth penned by the time the first episode even goes to air.
“It’s like having a jigsaw that gets bigger a bigger every day and, at the moment, the pieces are still all over the floor,” said the 45-year-old, whose taken an extended break from performing live to devote all his time to the project.
“I’ve currently got about eight episodes all spinning like plates inside my head.
“I’m going for a mix of the subtle gags and pathos you get in a show like Gavin & Stacey and the surreal silliness of Father Ted.”
Gilbert added that the show, which currently has the working title of Back To Llanbobl, stemmed from a joke he told in his first solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2005.
“I had this gag about how, as a boy, I watched my mother leave home with the milkman, which ended with the line, ‘Those were the worst three hours of my life’,” he said.
“And from that came that idea for a script in which I’m forced to move back to Llanbobl to look after my family in the wake of her departure.
“It’s going to be something completely different for me and real challenge – I’ve a lot riding on it.”
However, Gilbert will be back on TV – and on more familiar territory – later this year in the fifth series of his Bafta Cymru-winning Work Experience.
“We start shooting in May and have already had lots of invites to try my hand at various professions.
“The RAF even got in touch asking if I wanted to have a go at being a fighter pilot.
“I thought they meant in a simulator, but they were pretty adamant I could go up in the air for real after just one day’s flight training.
“I mean, what could possibly go wrong there?”

I’m guessing this fanpic was taken after Greg was persuaded to come on Rhod’s radio show while being hungover, but never making it and instead being stuck in traffic.
