Proud mother-of-two Dawn, 47, said she thinks Edie enjoyed the limelight and making people smile.

Counsellor Dawn said: ‘Edie kept asking me “do I have to do the race” and I told her no, but as soon as they announced it she was right up there.

‘After she crossed the finish line she looked back and saw she was in the lead so just kept going, she was so determined.

‘Everyone was cheering and clapping for her, she loved being in the limelight I think, and seeing people smile. When she finished, she said “I have never had such a loud applause”.’

Dawn continued: ‘She loved everyone’s reaction to the video, it’s been so amazing to see how people have taken too it. It was nice for people to see her determination and spirit.

‘I am so proud of her, it’s given her such confidence. Everyone is calling her Speedy Edie now.’
