Lewis Morgan, 42, has made a promise to wear a dress at a fundraising night for five-year-old Isla from Hornchurch who had a rare form of cancer, if he manages to raise more than £1,600 for charity.

He told the Recorder the idea came from a bet he had with a client, where they both had a target of losing two stone in the next few weeks and whoever did it first, the other one had to wear a dress in public.

But just last week the news broke that Isla was cancer free and had gone into remission.

“It’s a bit of a laugh at my expense, I’m quite happy to do it either way, but fingers crossed we raise enough money.
