"I was just putting my gloves back on and sat back in my chair when the wind took me over," 33-year-old competitor Anna Pollock told reporters. "Harry said to me, 'What did you do that for?!'"

The Royal Air Force Medic, who is partially paraplegic due to a past spinal bleed, admitted she was a little starstruck when Harry came over.

"I saw him and thought I've got to take the opportunity to ask for a picture," she said.

"He was so lovely to help me and he gives so much," Pollock added. He makes all the lads and the lasses feel important."
