An inspirational teacher will appear with football legend Gary Lineker’s wife on daytime TV tomorrow (June 6).

Linda Hartley will join Danielle Lineker on ITV Daybreak from 6.45am to discuss the Women in Spinal Cord Injuries Awards.

Linda, a teacher at Morecambe Community High School, is shortlisted for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) Community Star award at the ceremony tomorrow in Birmingham.

Linda became paralysed from the waist down in 2008 when she awoke in the middle of the night and without any prior warning, found she could not move her legs.

She later discovered she had a spinal condition called Transverse Myelitis.

Linda has since raised thousands for the SIA through various activities and events.

Danielle supports the SIA after her brother suffered a spinal injury while on a night out with friends in 2007.
