If you haven’t seen the clip of Ian Wright meeting his old primary school teacher Mr Pigden who he thought had died, it’s a must-see youtu.be/omPdemwaNzQ

He talked about it on Desert Island Discs this morning, and what Mr Pigden did for him as a teacher when he was a young boy getting into trouble at school. twitter.com/bbcradio4/status/1229016323709177857?s=21

God, very emotional what a lovely story.

I love this, I've seen it a few tunes doing the rounds on FB. The emotion in his voice gave me goosebumps.

I saw this on FB too - lovely to hear the recognition and respect Ian Wright had for him and the fact he not only recognised what he did for him, but he shared it publicly.
