The Guardian reports that a radio quiz contestant in Singapore who was disqualified for allegedly mispronouncing Tony Hadley's name has gotten his well-deserved prize money — after some intervention from the Spandau Ballet singer himself. It all started with the Celebrity Name Drop on Singaporean radio station Gold 905.
