Holly Willoughby in tears after little lad who was told he’d never speak talks live on TV

What a little legend!

An inspirational young lad from Greater Manchester left Holly Willoughby in tears on This Morning earlier today.

Chris Kilduff appeared on the show alongside his sister Jade, with the young Man City fan leaving viewers emotional after he defied doctors who said he’d never speak.

The youngster, who was born with brain damage and has cerebral palsy and impaired vision, was told he’d never be able to talk, smile or walk.



After he was adopted by a family from Heywood he began communicating using sign language, thanks to his sister.

Then today, Chris demonstrated his determination to prove the doctors wrong by telling Jade ‘I love you’ live on TV.

Jade, who selflessly gave up the chance to go to uni so she could look after her brother, told Holly and Phil the devastating story about how her family had initially fostered Chris, and when they held an adoption day for him no one came.

The silver lining is they ended up taking him in themselves, and judging by the incredible progress the little lad has made this worked out for the best for everyone.

At the end of the interview Phil then surprised Chris with hospitality tickets to a Man City game, making his day.

What a little legend! All the best Chris, and enjoy the game.

Channel 4

There’s a brand new series of Educating Greater Manchester to be released this year.

After a huge success, the award-winning TV show returns to life at Harrop Fold School in Little Hulton.

It’s the first time the programme is heading back to the same school more than once, having already visited them back in 2017.

The previous episodes of Education Greater Manchester were scrapped from TV listings in the wake of allegations of ‘off-rolling’ against headmaster Drew Povey, who eventually resigned.

Later that year Harrop Fold was placed in ‘special measures’ by Ofsted, convincing Channel 4 to pull the plug on the series.

Since then Educating North West has been off our screens, however, series 6 has been confirmed and the crew are heading back to Little Hulton.

The new series will air November the 3rd on Channel 4, all episodes will also be available to watch on All4.

GMB sparks debate that 70s film Grease is actually really sexist

Not everyone agrees…

Good Morning Britain posed the question this morning ‘Is Grease sexist?’ and viewers are pretty fuming.

It comes after Olivia Newton-John brushed off claims that the film is sexist in the wake of the Me Too movement.

The legend that played Frenchie in the 70s movie, Didi Conn appeared on GMB alongside singer Susanne Shaw and journalist Olivia Petter who claims the film is sexist.

Olivia Petter argues that the film implies Sandy needed to ‘change who she is in order to be accepted’.

Speaking to The Guardian, Oliva Newton-John denies the claims saying: “It’s a story from the Fifties where things were different. Everyone forgets that, at the end, he changes for her, too. There’s nothing deep in there about the #MeToo movement.”

On GMB, Oliva Petter explained that the big reveal scene at the end of the film which shows Sandy matching Danny’s rock and roll leather style, is ‘the only reason why she does that big transformation…is to please a man,’

People have taken to Twitter to express their opinions. One wrote: “I’ve heard it all now. @GMB actually arguing that a Grease is a sexist film. Stop the world, I want to get off,”

Another added: “I actually can’t believe this Grease debate is even happening.”

A third said, “Honestly the most ridiculous debate- have you all forgot that Danny changed himself at the end too, or is that ok??”

A fourth one said ‘Grease is iconic, loved by generations’.

What do you think?
