An Epworth mum and daughter met and chatted with their celebrity favourite.

Maxine Strong and daughter Olivia, of Burnham Road, met Peter Andre last weekend at a Child of the Year Awards event. Maxine’s late son Alexander was a former award recipient, during his initial brave battle against cancer.

Maxine said: “Peter asked how we were coping. He was lovely to talk to.

“He now knows all about Lex. We gave him Lex’s Legacy badges so he put one on straight away. I gave him a photograph and write-up about Lex and Pride of the Isle and he kept it. He was wonderful.”

The pair paid for the meet and greet with the celebrity at Scunthorpe’s Baths Hall and although their session was somewhat rushed, Maxine said they both loved the experience.
