Gwent pair to star in Valleys reality TV show

ONE wants to become the “Jean-Claude Van Damme of the Valleys”, the other a self-confessed ladette and drama queen.
They are two of Gwent’s cast members of the latest scripted-reality show to roll on to TV screens, MTV’s The Valleys.
Natalee Harris, 23, from Pontypool, and 19-year-old Aron Williams, from Tredegar, will appear in the show, which looks set to try to cash in on the same format as the The Only Way Is Essex, Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea.
Mr Williams is a kick-boxer who works at a leisure centre, loves Tredegar, and says he likes “getting tanned and pumped”, while his party piece is wiggling his bottom. He also says he fancies himself as an action movie star and is the next Van Damme.
Ms Harris, a call-centre worker who wants to be a model, says she is “quite a ladette”, and “good press or bad press, it’s all some kind of press”.
She describes Pontypool as “no place to be unless you’re in an Adidas tracksuit and have no teeth”.
