My grandmother Nora is my hero.

I caught a 7am flight to London after the VIP Awards to visit her for her 102nd birthday.

I had to buy two birthday cards to mark the day - a 100th birthday and a 2nd birthday, because nobody makes cards for that age, and I thought it was a nice gesture.

My dad, my fiance Richard and I all decided to go visit her. It was such a lovely family occasion.

I feel so blessed and lucky to have her. The fact that she has reached such a milestone is incredible.

When I saw her I was in tears and I couldn't wait to throw my arms around her and give her a big squeeze.

She loved having us all around her and when she got her birthday cake she blew out all her candles, I was so proud.

The weather over there was amazing so we had the chance to bring her out for a while, which she really enjoyed.

Unfortunately she won't be able to come to our wedding - at her age, the travelling would just be too much.
