Welsh rugby legend Gareth Edwards and his wife Maureen can be seen celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary in Pembrokeshire on screen this Tuesday, November 2.

The couple are starring in Gareth Edwards’ Great Welsh Adventure on BBC One Wales and in the second of the series, they visit the Tenby area for their celebrations.

Staying at Manorbier Castle, Gareth and Maureen – who first met when they were 11 - head west for an action-packed weekend in a place that is very close to their hearts.

Speaking in the episode, they said; ”It’s our 49th wedding anniversary so to mark the occasion, we’re visiting Dinbych-y-pysgod, Tenby; somewhere that’s very special to both of us.

“We first came here on school trips but we’ve returned many times with the family since then.”

It’s a weekend of wildlife for the childhood sweethearts who begin the celebrations with a boat trip around Caldey Island to see some amazing sealife but it’s clear Gareth’s photography skills aren’t quite as good as his skills on the pitch.

Back on dry land, the couple try their hand at zookeeping where they get up close and personal with rhinos and tigers.

They round off their trip with a Malaysian meal on the beach cooked by an award-winning local chef, where Gareth picks up some top tips on how to cook his favourite cuisine.
