Aled Jones used to be a cute blond-haired boy, who could sing really high notes. His most famous work was the accompaniment to the cartoon of Raymond Briggs' "The Snowman".
Not since Jimmy Osmond stormed the hearts of British female pensioners in the 70's, had so many old ladies frequented record shops. Across the nation, grannies could be heard saying "Why can't you be more like that lovely Aled Jones". He became universally despised by small boys for being a bit of an all round smart-arse.
He had 16 number one hits in Japan. But then the Japanese are hardly renowned for their musical taste. He recalled from his Japanese tour:

Aled Jones vanished from the public eye and became a presenter on Songs of Praise, which is pretty much the same thing. He now works in a fish and chip shop in Swansea.
For those of you interested, he actually has a fan site. See http://www.aledjones.co.uk/aled.html Aled's website. Or you could get a life instead.
What Next For Aled?
With a perennial small income from "The Snowman", Aled hopes to
become the first man to have his bollocks shoved back into his torso.
He has yet to find a surgeon who is willing to risk a possible comeback
by the squeaky-voiced Welsh twat. It is rumored he may have a secret sexual relationship with Michael Jackson which was recently discontinued after the Yucker
