Gavin and Stacey stars Ruth Jones and Rob Brydon have teamed up with Tom “Sex Bomb” Jones and Robin “Saturday Night Fever” Gibb to produce a one off single for Comic Relief.  The single is called “Barry Island in a Stream” and follows the comedic pair’s hilarious performance of the song during series 2 of Gavin and Stacey. As merely “Islands in a Stream”, it was originally a hit for Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton but was written by the Bee Gees.

Gibb has not only given his permission for the single to be recorded, but also appears in the epic 9-minute video and features as a backing singer. The video is to follow Brydon and Ruth Jones as Bryn and Nessa during a trip from Barry Island to perform in the World Karaoke Championships in Las Vegas, picking up Gibb and Tom Jones on the way.

The single is released on 9th March in time for Red Nose Day on the 13th.

Barry Islands In The Stream is out March 9th on Mercury Records. Pre-order NOW from www.rednoseday.com
