One Direction surprise Pride of Britain winner Danielle Bailey at school assembly
Danielle Bailey looks stunned as One Direction pop into her school yesterday to tell her she’s a Pride of Britain winner. The 13-year-old was in morning assembly when the boyband jumped out from behind a stage curtain.
As pupils began screaming, chart-toppers Liam, Zayn, Harry, Louis and Niall made their way to Danielle to let her know she had won the Child of Courage award.
She said: “I couldn’t believe it when they came over to me. I love all them all. My mates were so jealous!”
The band’s surprise visit will be shown during the Pride of Britain Awards next week when she will honoured after overcoming the loss of all four limbs to become a gold-medal winning swimmer. Danielle had to have her legs and hands amputated after she was struck down with meningitis aged four.
She took up swimming only a year ago but is already a national amateur gold medallist. She is now waiting to find out if she has been accepted on to the British Disability World Class Talent Programme, which could set her on the path to Paralympic glory.
this girl is AMAZING.
