Ken Barlow: "I didn't buy you a present. The money I would have spent, I gave to a charity that helps children in Africa. Father Christmas doesn't visit there so I sent something from you instead. You know, Amy, it's a wonderful thing that because of you, another little baby, far away from here... is going to have the best present in the world... the chance of a better life."
