Alex Lewis is someone who witnessed Piers’ epic Christmas lights fail live after organising the event to raise funds for his charity.

The father-of-one lost all his limbs and part of his face four years ago after fighting the bacterial infection Strep A.

Alex initially thought he had flu symptoms, but within hours of going to bed feeling poorly, he was in a coma and given just a three percent chance of survival.

Currently it costs him between £70,000 and £90,000 to sustain his prosthetics – but on the NHS people in his position are given just £400 a year in after care.

He’s now working with scientists to develop revolutionary prosthetics that could change the lives of amputees around the world.
