Rugby mad Rhian has the recipe for Six Nations success

With the Six Nations Rugby Championship about to kick off and Wales determined to defend their crown, it's an exciting time for supporters of the national team. But it would be fair to say that no fan is looking forward to the competition with more passion and enthusiasm than Rhian 'Madam Rygbi' Davies.

The Wales squad's super fan will be back on S4C in a new series of the light-hearted rugby chat show Jonathan on Friday, 31 January. And after winning the S4C cookery contest Pryd o Sêr recently, Rhian is keen to use her newly acquired terminology and knowledge about food.

"OMG, I've actually just won the actual Pryd o Sêr competition on S4C so I've been thinking loads about ingredients," she says. "Once again, this Six Nations, the Jonathan show will have the perfect ingredients for a Friday night in front of the box: in the studio there's the rugby legend Jonathan D; the best ref in the world (deffo) Nigel O - and our favourite rugby correspondent and fashionista - Sarra E - enjoying a conversation that's as light as any soufflé.

"Then for pudding, you get ME - the Wales rugby team's bigest fan - following the boys everywhere (it's a tough job but someone has to do it, obvs)."

On the eve of Wales's first game in the competition against Italy, Jonathan will be joined by his co-presenters, referee Nigel Owens and Sarra Elgan, for more fun, leg pulling and entertainment with two special guests.

And who better than Madam Rygbi to have some fun with the fans and add to the excitement with the big games just around the corner? There's no doubt that Rhian has enjoyed her recent experiences in the kitchen but her heart still belongs to rugby.

"Now I've graduated from Pot Noodles, I've been feeding my bezzers - the team - over at the Vale Hotel and there's a major buzz among the boys: after smashing the Six Nations twice running, this just has to be the best Championship ever. And with some seriously hot stars on the sofa, the Jonathan series is set to be the best yet too. I mean Michelinistic starred. *NON SILENT SCREAM*"

Let's hope Rhian keeps her eye on the ball as the Six Nations Championship progresses. You can follow her exploits throughout the international campaign on S4C's Jonathan.
