Before coming to St Audrey's care home in October 2018, Millie Bilton had lived in Hertford just like Mr Ezra.

Millie loves the pop star's music and the sound of his voice, so she mentioned this to St Audrey's activities co-ordinator Sian Oughton.
Sian knew the manager of the home Samantha Lynch was attending the Isle of Wight Festival at the weekend, where chart-topping singer was playing
The pair set about a social media campaign to try to make her dream a reality, with Ms Lynch also holding up a banner while Mr Ezra was on stage at the festival over the weekend to get his attention.
They have so far got no response but hope with social media they will be able to get Mr Ezra's attention - admitting that "as a fellow Hertfordshire resident we are tugging at his heart strings".
