The star was touched by the note

It’s almost two months since the tragic Grenfell tower block fire moved the nation and the memory of the ferocious blaze still lingers in all our minds.

But just imagine how it must be for those people who were actually involved in the disaster.

“I personally would like to thank you for all of the signed books you had given me, it really meant a lot to me especially after everything that has happened.

“It also replaced the ones I lost.

“Thank you once again.”
