Fair City welcomes a very special guest star to RTÉ One on Thursday night as 11-year-old Abbie Colfer comes to Carrigstown to raise awareness of Make-A-Wish Ireland's Wish Day on Friday, March 13.

Abbie wants Fair City viewers to help Make-A-Wish Ireland by donating online at makeawish.ie and/or buying pens in their local SPAR store. Funds raised will help grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Abbie was diagnosed with leukaemia in August 2016 and after two-and-a-half years of treatment has been in remission for 15 months. Make-A-Wish Ireland brought Abbie and her family to Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida last year.

Abbie and her family were invited to the Fair City set last month where she filmed her scene with co-stars Sorcha Furlong (Orla), Victor Burke (Wayne), Enda Oates (Pete) and Charlie Duffy (Junior). 

When asked about her TV debut, Abbie said: "I am really excited because I sometimes watch Fair City with my Nana, who is a huge fan."  

You can watch Abbie on Fair City on Thursday on RTÉ One at 8:00pm.

Fair City airs on RTÉ One on Sundays and Tuesdays to Thursdays.
