    It’s my 50th Birthday on Friday 2nd October and I’d love to have a seat so I could see strictly come dancing live this year. It would be a dream come true and set me up for my twilight years and if you could spare two tickets I would take my cousin who is a ballroom fanatic suffering from M E.

    Thank you in advance for making my dream a reality
