Cringing Cult of Celebrity
  • Carl Edwards off ITV Wales news went to Llani High when I was there. I saw him driving through town the other day and he was singing in his car!
  • I'm Adam Woodyatt's cousin, and yes he did live near Llani, in Llidiartywaun. His parents don't live here anymore though. Also, Robert Smith from The Cure is supposed to have a place in Cwm Belan.
  • Tony De Vit's co-producer now lives in Llani Town!
  • Just read yesterday that the parents of Murray the "Hump" (who was Al Capone's right hand man and was one-time public enemy No.1 in America) were from Llanidloes.
  • I read an article on how remote Wales was in "The Wales on Sunday" about 3 years ago. They claimed Salman Rushdie was in hiding in the Llanidloes area during the time "Satanic Verses" was published.
  • sanjays mum of eastenders lives here!i think......
  • Correct. Ian Beale( Adam Woodyatt)did live in Llani,well just outside.I think his parents still do. Not a very popular lad in his schooldays though by most accounts. There are loads of famous/infamous residents in Llani; Berty Slawson,Des Pugh and Gomer to name just a few.
  • Someone from Eastenders went to the school, I think. I maybe mistaken. It was Ian (cindy's x-husband) I think, I am not sure. The great oak cafe saw a few famous people walk in to. I was told.
