Review

It’s school reunion time in Pontyberry, an 80s-themed event that cannily flavours all this week’s events with just the right tone. One of the many girls with whom Stella (Ruth Jones) feuded is back, dressed as Krystle Carrington when almost everyone else is a pop star. These snobs always come a cropper.

The fancy dress theme achieves the trademark Stella trick of tempering emotion with laughs: Dai hits a new low as his marriage to Paula fails to fix itself, but he’s dressed as Adam Ant throughout so it doesn’t seem so bad.
Most importantly, a reunion is about longing for the past. The romance that never died between open-hearted Stella and manly, serene Rob (Mark Lewis Jones) warms up again.

Summary

Ashley Banjo brings Got to Dance to the valleys, so Ben persuades Little Alan to enter, hoping he can win the fame and fortune needed to save the rugby club from closure. The only problem is, the would-be star has two left feet. Can Bobby's choreography do the trick? Stella attends her fancy-dress school reunion, where she takes a liking to Rob in his Tom Cruise costume, while hopes of a reconciliation between Paula and Dai look bleak after a scandalous confession.
