The Welsh singer and presenter Cerys Matthews says she is “thrilled and honoured” to be the new face of independent Catalonia.

After a controversial referendum, Catalonia is attempting to establish itself as an autonomous country that’s separate from Spain.

“I come from a small region in another country with its own language and culture, so I totally get where these people are coming from,” said Matthews.

“At the announcement ceremony, I shall sing Barcelona with Sir Tom Jones.”
