During lockdown, it seems as though everyone has become a professional quizzer. Being unable to see our nearest and dearest, one popular way to see them and do a fun activity at the same time has been by doing quizzes with your friends and family on a video messaging app like Zoom or Skype.

But get ready, this is your two-day warning, because the biggest and best quiz ever is going to be hosted at 8:15 pm on May 21st. If you’re a huge fan of the British sitcom Gavin and Stacey, then get ready because two of the stars of the show are hosting their own Gavin and Stacey themes quiz. Yes really.

Speaking on This Morning, Alison Steadman, who plays Pam revealed that she’s going to be hosting the virtual quiz alongside her on-screen son Gavin, real name Mathew Horne. It will be hosted on Facebook and is raising money for Marie Curie. Join the quiz Facebook page here.

  • Oh, what’s occurring?

Probably one of the most famous catchphrases of the show is Nessa’s ‘what’s occurring?”

  • Oh My Christ!

But Pam’s “Oh My Christ!” is definitely a close second.

  • Gavlar!

We can’t forget Smithy’s “Gavlar!” although you could use “Pamlar” or any name with “lar” on the end really.

  • Tidy.

Another one of Nessa’s, she definitely has some of the best catchphrases of the series.

Remember that great moment where Nessa says she’ll have a pint, and everyone is expecting it to be of beer, then she comes out with the famous line “of wine!”

This quote comes from Gwen’s hilarious neighbour Doris, who comes out with some of the best one-liners of the show.

  • We’re having a barn dance

If you use this one as your quiz team name you have to say it in Bryn’s voice!

It was a little bit too long for a quiz name to list out Smithy’s whole Indian takeaway order. So instead, we’ve simply gone with Smithy doesn’t share.


  • Three Steaks Pam

When Pam was on the famous Atkins diet she had three steaks for her dinner, and feared she would become known as Three Steaks Pam.

  • My Little Prince

Another Pam quote, she often refers to her son Gavin as her “Little Prince”.
