CHERYL GIBBS: An embarrassing moment at a celebrity shindig with Sinitta

Have your say

I was so proud to see a picture of 15-year-old Lewis Mackenzie and his dad Neil in The News on Tuesday.

Lewis has written a song about his dad who is in the army and was called out on a two-month deployment to Afghanistan.

I’ve known Lewis for a while and first mentioned him in this column a few years back, saying he was one for the future.

His hard work is certainly paying off.

I think I always knew he was destined to entertain when he stood on a chair in the middle of the lounge when he was three to sing Bob The Builder to all of us.

And I’m sure Lewis will love me for sharing that story with you!
