THE exploits of Cannon and Ball in the Australian jungle have stirred memories for a Huddersfield man.
The comics, among the stars of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, were in town 15 years ago this month to help a seriously-ill five-year-old.
The comedians topped the bill at Huddersfield Town Hall in a show organised for Rhianna Jackson, who was suffering from cancer.
Former Huddersfield policeman David McSweeney organised a big charity appeal to help raise money for her recuperation after treatment and to help other young sufferers.
In March, 1990, Rhianna, the daughter of Tim and Linda Jackson, was diagnosed with a tumour on her brain. She underwent complex surgery, but made a great recovery.
The family now live in Elland and Rhianna, now 20, helps out at a local nursery.
Mum Linda said: "It was a great night and we are so grateful to them and David McSweeney.
"It all seemed like a dream, as Tim and I had no guarantee our daughter would survive."
Mr McSweeney, who had a track record for charitable work, set about raising £10,000.
He said: "Cannon and Ball agreed to give two shows in Huddersfield. The pair were brilliant.
"Bobby Ball jumped off the stage at the end to kiss and shake hands with all the disabled kids who were in the front row.
"Both of them waived their fee, allowing us to raise £3,000 for the appeal. It has been great to see them on Celebrity after all these years."
* Tommy Cannon was the first to be voted off the show. Bobby Ball is the 1/5 favourite to be next out and Carol Thatcher is the 10/11 favourite to win.
