2. Name one of the current characters in Pobol y Cwm, the longest running soap in Wales.
3. Name one of the eight permanent or core members of Goldie Lookin’ Chain, the rap band from Newport.
4. Name a beach recommended for surfing in South West Wales.
5. Tom Jones (or should that be Sir Tom?) has had several top ten hits in the UK. charts. Name one of them please!
