For example, did you know leading British brand Aston Martin, cars you associate with the ultra-sophisticated James Bond and glamorous Monte Carlo, are actually made in Gaydon, Warwickshire?

Then there’s the chocolate bar Bounty, which the adverts say is made with coconut with a ‘taste of paradise’, is actually produced in dull old Slough.

And what about my radio show? I might wish it was broadcast from the top of the Spinnaker Tower, but it actually comes from an industrial estate in Segensworth, East Fareham!
