The Pembrokeshire Murders viewers have been doing their own detective work after spotting a familiar face among the cast.
Fans have shared their delight on social media after spotting a Gavin and Stacey star in the new ITV drama – none other than Owain Hughes actor Steven Meo, who has had quite the transformation.
Best known by many for his appearance as Gavin’s Welsh colleague Owain, Steven plays DI Lynne Harries in the Pembrokeshire Murders, who assists in the investigation against serial killer John Cooper.
He stars alongside Luke Evans’s Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins, reopening two unsolved 1980s murder cases linked with a string of burglaries and sexual assaults.
Owain appeared in the third series of the BBC sitcom, playing one of Gavin’s new co-workers after he moves to Swansea.
His name was the subject of one of the most niche jokes on Gavin and Stacey too, when he said ‘and before you ask, no I don’t’ after introducing himself.
It left Gavin baffled. If you’re wondering, the joke refers to his name sounding like ‘Owe Wayne’, so it becomes ‘before you ask, no I don’t Owe Wayne Hughes.’
Steven looks completely different to his days on Gavin and Stacey in the new series, sporting a beard and much shorter hair in the role.
Fans shared their excitement at seeing the actor star in the drama, congratulating him on his new role.
‘Great to see Owain Hughes doing so well,’ one viewer wrote.
‘Anyone else watching #PembrokeshireMurders get way too excited when they saw Owain Hughes from Gavin and Stacey?’ another said.
The Pembrokeshire Murders concludes tonight at 9pm on ITV.
