Becky Dances on Ice

When Becky was receiving treatment for leukaemia, one of the things that took her mind off things was watching her favourite TV show, Dancing On Ice.

When Starlight told Heart and the Have a Heart appeal about Becky’s dream of dancing on ice with Torvill and Dean, they thought they may be able to help. 

They arranged for Heart presenter and Dancing On Ice judge Emma Bunton, to call 14-year-old Rebecca as a surprise during Toby Anstis’ show…

On the day her wish came true, Becky and her family took a limo ride to Elstree Studios to meet a whole host of stars including Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Kieron Richardson (pictured). She also met Hayley Tamaddon and Mikey Graham plus got the chance to skate with the Olympic champions, Torvill and Dean.

Becky was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2006. She completed two years of chemotherapy and has spent a great deal of time in hospital.
