He’s the 10-year-old boy whose bravery and accurate memory managed to jail two violent burglars after they broke into the family home, attacked his mum and dog before making off with precious jewellery.
The Met Police called Didier Levenfiche their ‘hero of the year’ and have thanked him for his evidence at the identity parade which sentenced wanted brothers Eugene and Devlin William to a combined 14 years and eight months last week.
Didier joins us today alongside his grateful mum Tania.

I felt like we were animals. It felt like she wasn't our daughter. That she might forget we were her parents.
Treated like monsters, arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and denied full access to their baby girl: Craig Stillwell and Carla Andrews were left devastated after authorities accused them of hurting their three-month-old daughter Effie (now 11 months) who suffers from a rare medical condition, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome which causes her arteries to rupture and creates ‘easy bruising’.
Her parents were questioned over her injuries whilst Effie was put into care with Craig and Carla given three visits a week after Buckinghamshire County Council took them to court.
Last week, a judge ruled in favour of the family saying they had experienced ‘unimaginable horror’ and thankfully, this weekend, Effie returned home where she belongs.
The family join us in an exclusive first interview as they raise awareness of their daughter’s condition.

After 21 years as a teacher, Chris Rose was looking forward to a relaxed retirement travelling the world with her husband. That was until - in November 2012 - her grandson Jack was born. With daughter Sarah agonising over childcare arrangements, Chris didn't hesitate to offer her services, putting her plans on hold to help - and becoming one of a rising number of so-called 'granny nannies'.
In fact, across the UK, an estimated 2.7 million grandparents are relied upon to provide regular full or part-time childcare. Chris and Sarah join us today alongside agony aunt Deidre Sanders, who herself is no stranger to looking after grandchildren.
We're into May which means the start of peak wedding season, so we're asking a question that everyone seems to have an opinion on - should children be banned from weddings?
As it stands, an overwhelming 88% of voters in our poll think the answer is ‘no’, insisting that children are part of the family and should absolutely be invited. Not according to writer Eimear O’Hagan, who sacked her chief bridesmaid as she didn’t want her newborn baby ruining the day. She's on Skype, and in the studio we’re joined by journalist Sally Jones, who agrees weddings are wrecked by children, and etiquette expert Grant Harrold, who says if it's good enough for the royals, it should be good enough for everyone else!
