Ant & Dec grant Starlight wishes!

Eleven-year-old Joe from Burnham-on-Sea and seven-year-old James from Leyland recently had their dearest wishes to meet television stars Ant & Dec granted by Starlight!

Joe, who suffers from Ewing’s sarcoma, and James, who has juvenile arthritis, are both huge Ant & Dec fans and it has always been a dream to meet their favourite TV stars.  Hearing about their wishes, Ant & Dec invited Joe and James and their families to join them at a recent dress rehearsal of Saturday Night Takeaway at ITV studios.

The rehearsal was brilliant and Joe and James were giggling throughout.  Despite being really busy, Ant & Dec made time to come over a couple of times during the rehearsal, which was amazing.  Then afterwards they spent some time with Joe and James, chatting, signing autographs and having their photo taken with them.

Getting to meet the duo, who were really lovely, and to have an exclusive preview of the show was truly a dream come true for both Joe and James and a wonderful treat after everything that they have both been through.
