Monday: A Hero Came Along.

When Mariah Carey once sang about a hero coming along, with the strength to carry on, was she talking about Ryan from Poole who won the chance to attend the red carpet celebrity premiere of San Andreas in London? 

No. Of course she wasn't. Ryan was on today's show and Mariah sang that years ago. 

However, if she'd have heard his tale of how he saved a family of ducklings from being run over, stopping at the side of the road and carefully, sweetly guiding them to safety FOR FIFTEEN MINUTES(!); Mariah may well have sung that song about him - even to him. (Possibly even dressed as a duckling, it's hard to say for sure...)

We reckon Ryan probably had hearts melting across Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole this morning, telling the tale of how he bravely guarding the fragile lives of the fluffy, yellow little ducklings - his wife watching lovingly in the passenger seat as her man masterfully showed strength and sensitivity. (Hear his heroic tale here.)

We do know he's got a pair of tickets to see the all-action film at the Empire Cinema, Poole. 

So now you could join him in Friday's draw to go to the premiere.

To win tickets to rub shoulders with the film's star Dwayne Johnson on one of the world's most famous red carpets, we want to know how you have saved the day.


If it makes everyone smile, gasp, wipe a tear from their eye OR if it impresses Mariah Carey* you could be a winner every morning this week.

Thanks for joining us. We'll see you in the morning from 6!

* - It doesn't really have to impress Mariah Carey.
