Actor Rupert Grint granted an incredible Christmas gift for a heartbroken family when he took them on a magical tour of the Harry Potter theme park. The Carter family were hit by tragic death when mum Denise died after giving birth to her fourth child in March 2009. Dad, Steve, 38, has been left to bring up their three sons and one daughter, and sadly Denise did not even live to find out they finally had the healthy baby girl they wanted. To cheer them up Noel Edmonds shocked them with a host of gifts as part of his Noel’s Christmas Presents show this Sunday on Sky1 at 6.30pm, including a trip to Florida. Rupert, who played Ron Weasley in the films, surprises Steve and the children by entering The Three Broomsticks as they sip butterbeer. When he asked the kids, Cameron (9) Ethan (7) Aaron (4), and Leah Grace(2) about their favourite part of the park they say the Dragon Challenge ride. Rupert, 23, replied: “I went on it four times in a row, after a lot of these(Butterbeers). I did not feel good.” Smiling Rupert then takes the family off to get souvenirs, telling them: “You can’t come here without getting a wand. I would keep them in the box though, in the wrong hands they can be pretty dangerous. So be careful.” Denise’s sister Roisin, who accompanied the family on the trip, said: “It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions. You see how happy they are but obviously there is a reason why this has all happened to them. That is very sad. But this has given them so much happiness and they are more than deserving of it.” Steve added: “The best thing was the look on the kids faces. There are great memories and I know Denise was watching over us on the trip.” Host Noel Edmonds told Steve people would take “great inspiration” from his story and bravery bringing up the family on his own.
