Surprise Surprise

Sunday, 21 October 2012, 7:00PM – 8:00PM

TV’s favourite, Holly Willoughby will be giving well deserving members of the public the biggest surprise of their lives in a brand new series of the iconic TV show, Surprise Surprise.

The heart-warming series will boast a number of tear-jerking surprises and dramatic reunions as Holly and her two roving reporters, Westlife’s Kian Egan and Capital Breakfast’s Dave Berry help make some dreams of a lifetime come true.

In the first show of the new series, Kim Gumble, 43 is hoping to surprise her son Luke, 24, who risked his own life to save his best friend, Billy-Joe Sewell. Diagnosed with liver failure at the start of the year and with no matches from a national call out, it was his childhood pal Luke who turned out to be a match.

With Billy-Joe’s condition deteriorating rapidly, Luke underwent the seven hour operation three days after finding out he could donate.

Despite the huge risks involved, the recovery time and pressure on his family and small children, Luke had no hesitation in volunteering to help his best mate.

Unbeknownst to Luke, Holly will be introducing one of Formula 1’s favourite stars who is armed with a very special surprise.

Next up is teenager and carer, Jodie Williams, 14, from the Wirral, whose sister Faye, 18, asked for Holly and the Surprise Surprise teams to help give her sister a very special thank you.

Jodie has dedicated so much time to caring for Faye who suffers from cerebral palsy. Unable to walk long distances and struggles with day to day tasks, younger sister Jodie, is always there to help as well as cooking her meals.

Dave Berry enlists the help of Jodie’s favourite band The Saturdays, to take the teenager on a unique shopping trip.

Other surprises include a couple reunited with their long lost wedding film and one lucky lady receives a very wedding proposal.

Each hour long episode will be jammed packed with surprises and Holly and the team will be scouring the nation to deliver spectacular and deserving surprises to ordinary people with exceptional real life stories.
