Residents at Queen Elizabeth Court, in Llandudno, were delighted when Ant and Dec made a surprise visit this week.
Rescue donkey twins Ant and Dec were brought to the Home to meet residents by Tom Tuoby of Allwood Donkeys. He rescued them ten years ago and his daughters named them after their favourite TV presenters.
As well as meeting some of the residents safely outside, the friendly duo were led around the outside of the Home, so that others could see them from their rooms.
Among the residents who loved meeting Ant and Dec was 85 year old Christine Goody. She said:
They looked wonderful! Their visit really lifted everyone’s spirits! The names did make me laugh.
She joked to carers:
I had no idea Ant & Dec were so hairy in real life!
Queen Elizabeth Court Activities Coordinator, Gary Carr, said:
Throughout the pandemic we’ve been doing everything possible to keep everyone’s spirits up, so it was so heart-warming to see the residents faces when they saw these beautiful, gentle animals!
Many of our residents know Ant and Dec from ‘I’m a Celebrity’ because it was being filmed near our Home recently. They thought it was hilarious when we were told what the donkeys were called!
