Zeta-Jones wins Monopoly

Wednesday, March 30 2005, 11:06 BST -- by Daniel Saney


The makers of board game Monopoly have decided to release a Welsh edition focussing on Swansea, birthplace of Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The choice of location was based upon the decision that the actress had more selling power than the designers' other option, singer Charlotte Church.

Speaking to The Sun, game desinger Mark Marriott explained: "It was a head-to-head between Charlotte and Catherine.

"Charlotte has not issued a record for several years and her lifestyle seems to have gone in a certain direction.

"During that same period Catherine became a mother again, won an Oscar and made a hatful of blockbuster films.

"Looking at where they would be in five years, Catherine was a safer bet."

In news on Charlotte Church's lifestyle, a topless picture of the singer has been stolen.
