A care home resident has met Peter Andre after winning a wish granting competition.
Patricia Martin, 85, was chauffeur driven by Rolls Royce to Peter Andre’s ‘Come swing with me’ concert, to meet him in person and watch him perform live.
When Patricia, a resident at Hallmark Care Home, Bucklesham Grange in Ipswich, was asked to write down a wish, she revealed she was keen to meet Peter Andre.
She had watched him compete on Strictly Come Dancing in November last year and shared her daughter’s admiration for the singer, who she was thought was attractive and a really good singer.
Bucklesham Grange, which specialises in residential, nursing and dementia care, granted Patricia’s wish after deciding she should be the homes winner of its festive wish competition.
Patricia said: “I had a lovely time and I enjoyed meeting Peter, he is a really nice man and a talented singer. It was worth the late and sleepless night!”
Patricia was accompanied to the show by care assistant and family friend, Beverley Shaw. She said: “Patricia had a wonderful evening and it was nice to see her enjoying herself and tapping her feet.
“Peter was a really genuine guy, he sung to her personally and even dedicated her favourite song, ‘Fly me to the Moon’ by Frank Sinatra later on stage, saying he met a special lady in a wheelchair called Pat.”
After the show, Patricia was given a signed programme and lanyard with Peter Andre’s signature.
