Kids plan mum's wedding day

Pd49070-5 The family will appear on TV show Marrying Mum and Dad.

A WOMAN'S wedding day is one of the most important days of her life, so leaving it up to two 12-year-olds might make some shudder.

But that's exactly what Linda Flewitt and partner Anthony Wardley did when Linda's twin daughters contacted the BBC kids' show Marrying Mum and Dad.

Ellie and Evie Flewitt-Tilston arranged the whole day - even down to designing their mum's dress - in front of the cameras.

"It was absolutely brilliant, my face was aching from smiling so much", said Linda, 45, of The Walk, Birdwell.
"I wouldn't have changed one thing, I can't believe how well they did."

They were one of only 20 applicants chosen and were asked to think of a theme which Linda is keeping a secret until the show is aired in the summer.
