The rug pictured and the beautiful butterfly wall hanging could be yours. We have two pictures, A and B, picture B has two things missing.  If you can spot them email us at [email protected] and we will put you in the draw.  Someone will win on Saturday afternoon!

The Military Wives are a choir apart, they have inspired across the nation, their single “Where-ever you are”, the Christmas Number one became the fastest selling single in the 21st century, their album is number One across the UK and they have raised over £500,000 for the Royal British Legion and the SSAFA Forces Help.

Alive is proud to have Annie on the show.

If you could ask Annie a question what would it be? Email us at [email protected] we may ask it for you!
