Prime time TV star draws the hospice lotto winners

STAR of The One Show Matt Baker has picked winners of this year’s Hospice Lottery Superdraw.

The top prizes were £7,000, £1,000 and £500. The £90,000 raised from sales will go to seven hospices including Tring’s Iain Rennie Hospice at Home and The Hospice of St Francis in Northchurch.

Former Blue Peter presenter Matt, who was the Strictly Come Dancing runner-up last year, said he was delighted to support charities close to his home.

The presenter of Countryfile, who lives in the Chilterns, denied reports he is moving away.

He told the Gazette: “I have to be close to London for work, so it’s nice to come back out to a beautiful and scenic place to live.”
