They were also joined by Britain’s Got Talent magician and Scotty’s Little Soldiers ambassador Lance Corporal Richard Jones at an event held exclusively for children who have lost a parent serving in the military.

More than 150 children from the Lynn-based charity attended the star-studded event in Caythorpe, Grantham, on Saturday, December 2, for a day of gameshow-themed fun.

They were also treated to an impromptu acapella sing-off between X Factor singers Holly Tandy and Leon Mallett, who appeared on this year’s show.

Miss Tandy said: “I had a fantastic time celebrating with Scotty’s Little Soldiers. The children were fantastic to be around, and it was lovely to see them all having such a wonderful time. It was a pleasure to be part of.”
