    A young man walks onto the stage of Stars in their Eyes, on crutches, with a
    plaster cast from his feet to his hips.

    Matthew Kelly introduces him as Simon. " It's very brave of you to come out
    here, " says Matthew. " Please tell the audience what happened? "

    " Well " , replies Simon, " about a year ago, I was driving with my uncle
    when we had a really bad accident. Unfortunately my uncle was killed
    outright but I survived. I was trapped in the car for six hours before I was
    eventually cut free. The doctors had me in surgery for 12 hours but they
    couldn't save my legs. "

    " That's terrible. But I see you have legs now. Are they artificial? " asks

    " No Matthew, while I was in hospital the doctors informed me that my uncle
    had in fact died, but that his legs were fine and with all the advances in
    medical science, they could graft the bottom half of his body onto mine. As
    you can see the operation was successful. I have been having physiotherapy
    for six months and hope to be walking fully again by the end of the year. "

    A huge round of applause erupts from the audience.

    Kelly responds with, "That's an unbelievable story. So tonight, who are you
    going to be? "

    " Tonight, Matthew, I am going to be... :-

    Simon and Halfuncle! "
