sorry,that's for clue 2.

I was wondering wether clue 4) was an awful pun. "while he was asleep" being Wayne Sleep, who set some sort of record in ballet dancing. (if you set a record does that make you world champion?).

Mmmm... I'm still unsure that "while he was asleep" would refer to Wayne Sleep. I'd pencil it in until someone posts a better answer (or not).
