Six Nations Special

Tourist Trap. Elaine (Sally Phillips). Copyright: The Comedy Unit
Wales are playing a massive match against South Africa at the Principality Stadium and Wow Wales have an exciting new rugby-based tourism campaign to promote on game day.

Further details

To tie in with the Six Nations rugby tournament, the Wow! Wales team are returning for a one-off special celebrating the sport in Wales.

CEO Elaine has been given a corporate hospitality box at the Principality Stadium to entertain a select group of movers and shakers, including former international Tom Shanklin.

This is Elaine's chance to use the power of a free ticket to put the team front and centre of the corporate stage. The only problem is, she knows nothing about rugby - or Wales for that matter.

Meanwhile, the joint Heads of Corporate - Wyn and Charlotte - see this as the pinnacle of their free-loading career and set out to squeeze every last possible freebie from this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

As for the rest of the Wow! Wales team, they have been ordered into work to push the message "Give Wales a Try" - a mission they have accepted with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
