A Brechin woman has crossed off the top name on her celebrity wish list, after she met Peter Andre, on what was a “truly inspirational and emotional” day.

Davina Mackie, who has sadly been diagnosed with terminal cancer, has a list of celebrities she would like to meet, including Shane Lynch, Chris Chittell (Emmerdale’s Eric Pollard) and Jeff Hordley (Emmerdale’s Cain Dingle), but she never dreamed she would meet Peter Andre first.

Davina met Peter at a recent event in Edinburgh, which he opened.

Her friend, Joanne Pittendreigh, contacted the organisers, Girls Day Out to arrange an opportunity to meet the star.

Davina thanked Joanne, saying: “If it wasn’t for Joanne, I wouldn’t have met him.”

Davina’s son, Neil, attended the event along with his mum and Joanne, where they were kept behind to spend longer with the Australian born singer.

Peter, whose brother is battling cancer, was very emotional when he meet the group, even shedding a few tears during a private talk with Neil.

He kindly offered Davina VIP tickets to his show in Edinburgh in six months time.
