Further details

Tamsin is an extremely unwell little girl, so Jan and Graham have asked children's charity WishmakerUK to brighten up their daughter's birthday.

The charity is bringing along a very special guest indeed: none other than the legendary singer - and Jan's personal favourite - Frankie J Parsons! But events at the party soon take a sudden turn for the worse.
