Aw! That's brought back a few memories.

I used to live in Leeds and I remember going to see the lights being switched on.

I must have been about 14.

Philip Schofield was switching them on.

This is back in the days when he was a bit dishy and presenting kids TV in the 'broom cupboard' with Gordon the Gopher.

Swoon... I touched his scarf.

And the me and the girls hung around in the shopping centres and arcades eyeing up the lads and sqirting each other with 'silly string'.

Happy days.
