Aled Jones, who captured the hearts of the nation with his haunting and angelic soprano singing, had 16 number one hits in Japan. He recalled: There were thousands of screaming young girls at the airport. I thought, God, this is fantastic. But my chat-up lines were limited. I was there to narrate Hansel And Gretel and the only Japanese I knew was do you want to look round my gingerbread house? And one of Waless premier Welshpop as opposed to Britpop bands, Gorkys Zygotic Mynci, have proved to be a hit with teenage girls in Japan where fans have the band autograph EnglishWelsh dictionaries.
