Baby Amelie is a ray of sunshine, says Paul O'Grady

A baby girl who spent 15 months in Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the small stars of Paul O' Grady's new show on ITV.

Amelie Oakley, 18 months, features in a series presented by Ashford's Paul O'Grady. It's called Little Heroes and follows the lives of some of the hundreds of children and their families who come through the hospital's doors every day.

Amelie was born with a rare condition which means food and drink enter her airway instead of her stomach and she needs round the clock care. But despite her health problems she's a ray of sunshine who clearly stole Paul O'Grady's heart. Kerry Swain went to meet Amelie and her mum at home.
