Welsh Newsflash!

The Welsh have claimed another celebrity as their own - none other than pint-sized pop princess Kylie Minogue. It turns out that Kylie's mother was born in Wales - and her name was Jones. Her family ran a post office in Maesteg in South Wales. At the same time. My Grandma was running a post office in Pontardulais - another Welsh village not far away. I wonder if they knew each other.

Can I please refer you back to my earlier blog post about being Welsh when I made three suggestions. One. Jones is a good Welsh Surname. Two. Wales is the Cradle of Civilisation. Three. All celebrities are, in the end, Welsh - according to the Welsh.

Welcome Kylie into the arms of the Welsh. We will love you as much as the gay community do. But not quite as much as we love Tom Jones. Sorry.

And here's Kylie and her Welsh mother Carol. She looks Welsh too with that dark hair!

I thought everyone knew this, you're not doing very good at being Welsh ;)

We lost our claims to Bob Marley a few years ago though, but we still have Rolf Harris.
