In years to come, who will people remember as the standout character of the Covid crisis?

Chances are it will be Captain Tom Moore, the Bedfordshire veteran who walked round his garden and hit headlines round the world.  A hundred laps and a hundredth birthday were quickly followed by £30 million for NHS charities, a knighthood and Piers Morgan's Life Stories. So what gave Sir Tom the X factor? What was it like in the home that became besieged by the world's press?  

Speakers:

Hannah Ingram-Moore is Sir Tom's daughter and a marketing and strategy expert.

Rebecca Haworth is an ITV News Anglia reporter and the first journalist to meet Sir Tom.

The event will be hosted by Becky Jago, the ITV News Anglia presenter.
