It's Christmas Eve and the two families are coming together to celebrate Christmas. Smithy can't wait to spend his first Christmas with baby Neil, but doesn't count on Dave Coaches tagging along and playing happy families with Nessa. Jason and Bryn, meanwhile, have a heart-to-heart about 'that' fishing trip and Gavin and Stacey's revelation to Pam and Smithy doesn't quite turn out to be the Christmas present they were expecting.
