PRINCE William has revealed he was a fan of the hit TV show Gavin And Stacey as he presented one of its stars, Sheridan Smith (below), with an OBE.

The actress (33) was honoured for a varied career that has included appearances in popular sitcoms, West End musicals and serious dramas that have earned her a Bafta and two Olivier Awards.

Smith played down her achievements during her brief chat with William.

"I said I don't feel as worthy as so many of the recipients, but thank you, it's a huge honour," she said.

"He said he'd seen some of my work, which is amazing, and was a fan of Gavin And Stacey."
