The latest episode of Channel 4's Joe & Katherine's Bargain Holidays, which sees TV comedians Joe Wilkinson and Katherine Ryan go on bargain holidays around the UK and Europe, features all the fun stuff to do and the gorgeous views around Three Cliffs Bay, Gower, and Mumbles. A notoriously honest and salty comedian, Katherine doesn't hold back about her time in Wales and of course is won over by the trip, telling her travel pal that it's "one of her best holidays".

In the instalment, seen on Thursday, May 2, they also visit Port Talbot's Baked Bean Museum, take on some small children in a sandcastle competition, and try Welsh food such as laverbread, which Joe does not enjoy. Both seasoned stand-ups they are also known for their appearances on Eight Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown while Joe has also appeared in After Life and Katherine is a regular on Your Face or Mine with Jimmy Carr and appeared in Netflix's The Duchess.

The pair kick off the episode by putting up their canvas tent at the Three Cliffs campsite which offers "super-fancy glamping" according to Joe with a "belting view of the beach". At the campsite the pair put up the tent successfully before taking part in a beach clean – which Katherine embarks on with a "face like a slapped arse" according to Joe – but she's into it thanks to the promise of a hot dog at the end.

It's not all bad though – Katherine muses that "there's no garbage" at the beach and that the volunteers should "come to London" instead. Plus they get free hot dogs around a bonfire at the end, which feeds into their "bargain" MO.

They also visit Mumbles where they take a bike ride. Almost causing chaos with their unruly cycling, Katherine accuses Joe of making her "look like a d*ck again" as he encourages her to greet bypassers by saying "mumbles" at them , which he claims is also a Greek term of greeting people.

Despite her reservations Katherine is loving the Welsh seaside town. "I love the Mumbles so far, Joe," she says at one point before going on to claim later in the episode that: "I love the UK. I love every part of it. I love Wales. This is one of the best holidays I've ever had."

This was probably due to the fact they'd just beaten a load of kids at a sandcastle competition – though Katherine did seem to enjoy most of the aspects of the trip from the food, the views and the £30 prize to spend in the nearby arcade, exclaiming: "We destroyed those kids!"

The show is peppered with the pair's signature humour and jokes but there's no doubt that Joe and Katherine had a great time, also taking part in orienteering around Oystermouth Castle, venturing east to visit Captain Beany at the now-closed Baked Bean Museum in Port Talbot, while they finished off their trip with some high-speed car rides around Llandow and a steam train ride on the Gwili Railway in Carmarthenshire.

They priced up their break at £198 per person for four nights. Joe was quite pleased with the bargain trip and Katherine covered Wales concluded: "I've had a great time in Wales and as a bargain holiday family adventure 10 out of 10 – the kids will love it."

You can catch up with Joe & Katherine's Bargain Holidays on All4 now and it airs weekly on Channel 4 at 10pm on Thursdays.
