The series featuring rugby legend Gareth Edwards - Gareth Edwards’ Great Welsh Adventure - comes to a close as he and wife Maureen round off their trip in the Brecon Beacons.

It’s not the usual walks amid epic mountain scenery however, as Maureen has enlisted them both in tank school. After donning camo cream and military gear, the couple get a lesson in driving a full-sized tank and Maureen is keen to see how fast it can go.

Gareth is a keen clay pigeon shooter and wants Maureen to try her hand at the sport. The pair meet farmer and Welsh champion clay shooter, Rhys Lewis, who gives them some top tips before the competitive couple have a go.

Meanwhile, their inability to take one in-focus photograph of their new adventure continues but with the help of a local photographer, they hone their skills at a spectacular natural cave.

It’s then back to where their original adventure began as Gareth and Maureen get back on one of Wales’ most beautiful canals. Even with a little help at driving, will Maureen finally manage to navigate the waters without crashing?

Speaking in the episode, Gareth said; “It’s been a fabulous summer. When lockdown ended, we wanted to get out and seize what life had to offer and we haven’t had to look far.

“From the mountains of Snowdonia to the beaches of Pembrokeshire and the rolling Brecon Beacons,  we’ve tracked down old friends, made new acquaintances and experienced a few things we never thought we’d try and we’ve enjoyed every minute.”

The episode is set to air on Friday, 3 December

on BBC One Wales at 7.30pm.
