Ten-year-old Leyton from Worsley was diagnosed with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) at birth, which meant that he did not have any immune system to fight infections. As a result of his immune system, sadly Leyton suffered renal failure in May 2013 and he is now dialysis dependant.
Leyton’s favourite programme is Emmerdale and he has always dreamed of visiting the set. Starlight arranged for him to visit the ITV studio in Leeds, where he enjoyed an amazing backstage tour of the set, getting to see all the houses and even pulling a pint in the infamous Woolpack Inn! He also got to have lunch with his hero, Cain Dingle, who is played by Jeff Hordley!
