London, (ANI): Jessica Beresford's dream of meeting singer Peter Andre came true when the five-year-old, who is battling against a life-threatening illness, met him on his new reality TV show, Peter Andre: The Next Chapter. The little Jessica from Dudley in the West Midlands suffers from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a cancer of the white blood cells marked by excess lymphoblasts.
Her wish to meet Andre was fulfilled when she was taken to the Radisson SAS Hotel in central London, before a pink limousine drove her for a rendezvous with the Aussie crooner at the Crazy Bear Club in London's Covent Garden for filming."I can't believe I just met Peter. Mummy - did that just happen?" the Mirror quoted Jessica, as exclaiming.
Her mother Debbie Hickman said: "This has been the best day ever for Jessica, she loves Peter and this day will stay with us forever."Jessica and her parents were later taken for a meal at The Rainforest Cafe in Piccadilly Circus.
Talking about his meeting with the kid Andre said: "Jessica is a lovely little girl and she just has to keep smiling for her mum and dad. I am so pleased to have met her today, she is a very brave little girl." The programme will be aired today at 9pm on ITV2. Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, which grants wishes of children and young people with life-threatening illnesses, had organised the event.
