THE Welsh-learning celebrities of the S4C series cariad@ iaith:love4language reunite in Carmarthenshire on Christmas Eve for a one-off festive special programme.

Nia Parry and Gareth Roberts present the programme at 9.3pm(English subtitles), as the celebrity learners try to pick up where they left off after an intense week learning Welsh on S4C in July. This time the challenges are Christmas themed as the crew learn Welsh the festive way. The challenges include turkey plucking, cooking mince pies and a Christmas pantomime performance — but how much Welsh do they remember?

All but one of the eight celebrities were re-united for the Christmas special which was filmed in Laugharne. Present was the series winner Melanie Walters along with Colin Charvis, Helen Lederer, who was born in Llandovery, Josie d'Arby, Lembit Opik, Matt Johnson, and Rhys from GLC. Sophie Evans was unable to attend since she was starring in the lead role in The Wizard of Oz in the West End.
