The results are in, and our 12 finalists in the Best Friend of the Year competition have now been announced. Each day we’ll be taking a look at our winners’ stories, and today we find out more about Gemma and Christopher.
Gemma and Christopher have been best friends since they were 13 years old. When Gemma, from Houghton-le-Spring, lost her partner to leukaemia aged just 20, Chris was there through it all: Gemma’s rock. Christopher has supported Gemma every step of the way, keeping her strong by looking after her through even the toughest times. Gemma is so grateful to Christopher for always making her smile, and for being around whenever she needs him.
Gemma was ecstatic to find out that she has made the final of the Best Friend of the Year competition:
“I’m over the moon to be going down to London and to be on the set of Loose Women. It’s an amazing opportunity. I couldn’t ask for a better friend than Christopher: he really is the greatest friend in the world.”
Keep checking tombola times to find out more about our other finalists. Each of the 12 pairs of Best Friend of the Year finalists will be attending the Loose Women luncheon in London on 8 June 2015, where the overall winner will be announced.
