BBC Three will soon cease to exist as a broadcast channel, but before it moves online, it's giving us one last night of laughs. Its schedule for its last night on the air is filled with old favourites and shows that made the channel's name.

'Don't Tell the Bride', 'Gavin & Stacey', 'Siblings' and 'Top Gear' are among the highlights.

Tuesday February 16th is its last night on air – that's a week yesterday. From the 17th, it will only exist as an online portal.

The night of the 16th opens with the first episode of 'Top Gear''s 16th series, which sees Clarkson submitting the Skoda Yeti to an extremely thorough road test.

That's followed by a classic Las Vegas episode of 'Don't Tell the Bride', then 'Gavin & Stacey', 'Little Britain' and 'Bad Education'.

The 'EastEnders' repeat also sneaks in.

The late schedule is filled with boorish comedies 'American Dad' and 'Family Guy', then 'The Mighty Boosh', 'Cuckoo', 'Siblings', 'Josh' and 'Some Girls'.

The last show to air on the channel will be 'Gavin & Stacey', which launched the career of now-US talk show host James Corden.

From Wednesday 17th, BBC Three is online-only. It even has a new logo to consolidate its new digital-only approach.

According to BBC director general Tony Hall, the atmosphere at the channel feels like that of a start-up tech company at the moment. Let's hope it has plenty of fresh ideas.
