Stars in Their Eyes


Recommended Posts

During a recent Stars in Their Eyes episode, a young man in a wheelchair rolls on to the stage, and the host introduces him as Simon.


Host: "It's very brave you coming out here in your wheelchair - can you tell the audience what happened?" Simon: "About a year ago, I was driving with my uncle when we had a really big accident. Unfortunately, my uncle was killed outright, but I survived, trapped in the car for 6 hours and had to be cut free. The doctors had me in surgery for 12 hours, but they couldn't save my legs."


Host: "That's terrible, but I see you have legs now, are they artificial?" Simon: "No, whilst in hospital, the doctors advised me that the uncle who had been in the car with me had passed away, but that his legs were fine, and that with all the advances in medical science, they could graft his legs onto my body. I have been having physiotherapy for 6 months, and I hope to be walking again by the end of the year."


Host: "That's fantastic. So, what are you performing tonight?" Simon: "Well tonight I am going to be Simon and Half-Uncle."
