Andrew McDonald and Debbie Timbrell
in The nominees
DEBBIE Timbrell and Andrew McDonald have been nominated by a friend following a recent tragedy.
In June this year, Debbie, 30, gave birth to the couple’s first daughter Angel, who was stillborn at 26 weeks.
The couple had started planning the wedding of their dreams, but the plans have since been put on hold.
Sarah Jarvis, who nominated the couple, said: “They are a loving couple raising three adorable boys under five, each of whom has had a rocky ride into this world. The love Debbie and Andy show the boys is solid but behind this loving family is tragedy and heartache.
“The loss of baby Angel has rocked this loving family as when planning for a wedding, life stopped and they had to plan for Angel’s funeral.”
The couple’s sons, twins Frankie and Alfie, five, and two-year-old Owen were all born prematurely and in need of a lot of extra care.
Debbie and Andy, who live in Salisbury, met in June 2008 when they were both on a night out with friends. They got to know each other and, after two years together, Andy, 34, proposed.
Debbie said: “We would really love to get married on June 9 next year which would’ve been Angel’s first birthday, so we can celebrate something happy on that day. It would mean everything to us to win the competition and it would make our family complete.”
