Frank helps vet become TV star

A vet from West Kirby, Merseyside, has been filmed for CBeebies’ ‘erne and Rory’s Vet Tales.

The show, in its second series, is a spin-off from the popular My Pet and Me. Each episode follows a different child taking their poorly pet to a vet for help with making them feel better and aims to teach children about veterinary practice and animal care.

The film crew enlisted the help of veterinary surgeon Dylan Payne, from Acorn Veterinary Centre, in Acacia Grove, Dulwich, to give seven-year-old Grace Wharton’s cat a thorough check over after he was diagnosed with a liver problem earlier in the year.

Ferne Corrigan, one half of the BBC presenting duo who front the series, was there to meet Dylan, Grace and Frank the cat. Ferne, who has two rescue guinea pigs, said: “The surgery is absolutely brilliant and everyone had been so welcoming. We’ve had a great day filming here with Grace and Frank. It’s been lovely to tell their story.”
