AN eight-year-old girl from Peebles has celebrated beating leukaemia by having "the best night of her life” meeting superstar singer Lewis Capaldi.

The chart-topping singer video-called Charly Bisset last Easter when she was in hospital fighting acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

The hospitalised youngster had been singing along to the number one hit “Someone You Loved” just minutes before he was singing it to her over a live video chat.

This was all thanks to her nurse Monique, a friend of Lewis's, who had contacted him to make the surprise.

The Brit Award winner promised Charly tickets to his sell-out Glasgow show this month.

And when his manager called the family home last Thursday to invite them all that night, they couldn’t believe their luck.

Dad Mark said: “Lewis kept his word after the initial video call last year when he promised to get her to his big show and meet him in person.

"It was Monique, a nurse that looked after Charly that started it all off as she is a close childhood friend of Lewis.”

Mark says the moment they received the call from Capaldi’s manager their household was chaos.

He continued: “My wife Kirsty got the call from Lewis and his manger to invite us up that night.

"It was moment we’ll never forget. Charly got so excited she couldn’t breathe and we had to calm her down. Her older sisters were in complete hysteria.”

The Bisset family didn’t waste any time in travelling to Glasgow and parking in the backstage car park, where they were met and escorted into the green room to wait for the Lewis.

Describing the first moment they clapped eyes on the Scottish singer-songwriter, Mark said: “Two minutes later he burst through the door shouting hello!

"He stayed talking with Charly for around 20 minutes and then posed for photos with the family.”

Despite becoming an overnight sensation, bagging a Brit Award and being nominated for a Grammy, the humble Scottish star still tells it how it is.

“He was asking Charly how she was getting on with her treatment and what’s been happening since he last spoke to her.

“He told her he was really nervous about going on stage in front of his largest crowd!”

After receiving a bag of merchandise goodies, Charly and her family were shown to their seats.

Mark added: “She said it was the best night of her life.

"She loved every minute of it and lost her voice singing along with every song. We can’t thanks Lewis, his manager, and the rest of the team enough for making Charly feel so special. And after the year she has had, she well and truly deserved it.”

The perennial joker made nervous Charly giggle during their chat.

She said: “Lewis was very funny and made me feel relaxed from the very beginning as I was nervous about meeting him, but he’s just a normal person like us.”

And that wasn’t the only star Charly would rub shoulders with that night, as she was sitting next to Celtic footballer Leigh Griffiths.

However, her dad didn’t tell his Rangers daft daughter this until after he’d snapped a photo!

The brave Peebles schoolgirl is now free from leukaemia following a successful bone marrow transplant, however she still needs two years of treatment.

But she has a bright future and will be mixing with celebrities later in the year, after arranging to catch-up with her new friend Lewis at TRNSMT festival, where she will also be meeting global superstar Rita Ora.
