THE leader of a youth club will be on prime time TV this Saturday.

Clare Muir, co-ordinator of the Swan Youth Centre in High Street, Berkhamsted, was surprised by Torchwood star John Barrowman while walking through the town centre in June.

She’d been nominated to appear on Tonight’s The Night by 15-year-old Ailish Brown, who goes to the youth club.

In the popular show a film crew and presenter John surprise do-gooders each week and then make their dreams come true.

Bike mad Clare got to go cycling with Olympic gold medal winner Chris Boardman in the 2012 Olympic velodrome.

She said: “I can’t believe it happened to little old me.

“I was overwhelmed that Ailish thought I was worthy of being nominated and I am really grateful to her.”

Clare runs her own Third World charity, Wamba Community Trust – go online at
