Graham Norton gave TV funnyman Rob Brydon plenty of stick for being voted one of Wales' sexiest men when the star appeared on his BBC One chat show.

Brydon was on the show to promote the upcoming Gavin & Stacey Christmas special along with co-star and writer Ruth Jones - with the pair being joined on the sofa by actor Henry Cavill.

Norton joked that Jones, who was sat in the middle, was part of a 'beefcake sandwich' adding: "Henry a man of steel etc, but Rob you have an accolade.....as a certain sort of man.....a very special honour in Wales."

The Irish chat show host and comedian then revealed Brydon's place in the Western Mail's Top 50 Sexiest Men poll from 2003 - prompting raucous laughter from the studio audience.

Brydon quipped: "I came in at a very respectable 47th".

There was more banter in store when Swansea-born actor and comedian revealed that he was only once place ahead of veteran journalist John Humphrys.

Norton said: "Look at you there looking sultry.....now that's something you can say 'sexier than John Humphrys."

Brydon quickly replied: "Only just".

And there was further mickey taking to come for Brydon about his striking resemblance to Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke as well as a personal trainer from New York.
