Jones' Daughter Lands West End Role

Welsh singer Aled Jones' nine-year-old daughter is following him into showbiz - she's landed a West End role in Shrek The Musical.
Emilia is taking on the part of a young Princess Fiona in the stage show, and Walking in the Air hitmaker Jones admits he was nervous when she first accepted the role.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "It's what she wants to do, who am I to stop her? I just worry because I don't want her to get a job - or not get a job - because of me... I was petrified that first night sitting in the stalls watching her. I looked at the massive theatre and thought, 'Gosh, she's nine, what happens if she forgets the words?'...
"Did I need to worry? No. Mels is not scared of anything. She hasn't got the insecurities an adult has. I suppose my parents had them for me, like I do for Mels."
