    I assumed it was because Owain Hughes sounds like "Owe Wayne Hughes" as in "Owe Wayne Hughes [money]?" "No he doesn't". I can't think what else it would be.

    I'm not really sure to be honest, it's not a very good play on words because Owain is pronounce Oh-Wine in Welsh, but for the life of me I can't think of what else it could be. Most people I know are baffled by the joke LOL!

    I think that's the point. It doesn't make any sense. NO one gets it! (apart from Uncle Bryn and other welshie's so gavin is made to feel more like an outsider!!)

    My hubby is Welsh....nope there is nothing in it as far as him his mates and family can see and some of them are welsh fluent etc.

    its just something put in there to exaggerate Gavin's awkwardness in Wales.

    My OH got told by his welsh friend that Owain somehow (and I'm not sure which way) to smells or smelly or something like that. So it would be Smelly Hughes..........or Owain smelly/smells etc.

    I had no idea what it meant when I heard it either :dohh:

    Rob Brydon said in an interview (actualy, could have been twitter) that it meant absolutely nothing, which i'm glad he clarified because I studied welsh for 6 years and I couldn't figure it out either!
