We interrupt today’s schedule to bring you an extra special bonus video – just for the North East Autism Society and our supporters.

Today – during her rehearsals for pantomime in Middlesbrough – Anne Hegerty from TV’s The Chase took time out to chat to Lindsay Bruce from our campaigns team.

Speaking about Christmas, the importance of solitude, acceptance and her own personal challenges, we are hugely grateful to the I’m a Celebrity star for her candor, and generosity in speaking to us during dress rehearsal day.

Enjoy – and please do support our Christmas Campaign.
