Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Sheen back Swansea culture bid

Hollywood actors Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Sheen have joined comedian Rob Brydon and singer Bonnie Tyler in backing Swansea's bid to become the UK's 2021 City of Culture.

The UK government's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said the winner would be revealed on The One Show on BBC One.

The show will come from Hull, the current city of culture, and minister John Glenn will announce the winner between 19:00 and 19:30.

Swansea has been named on a shortlist of five, which also includes Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland and Paisley.
