Torvill and Dean skate for Gemma

When Starlight granted a wish for Gemma, who has WAGR syndrome, her dream came true. Gemma has already defeated a Wilms’ tumour and often has to spend time in hospital. Starlight granted her greatest wish to meet her ice skating heroes, Torvill and Dean.  

Gemma and her mum were whisked off to Elstree Studios to watch Dancing on Ice Live, one of Gemma’s favourites. They were then given an exclusive backstage tour, and that was where Gemma met Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, as well as a host of other celebrities and the judges!

Gemma’s mum said: “Gemma had the most amazing time and was thoroughly excited to be meeting with Torvill and Dean. It was absolutely brilliant and the highlight of Gemma’s life.”
