Izzy's parents left her asleep and raced to Hemel Hempstead hospital, where their son had been taken by ambulance."The first I knew something was wrong was when I was getting ready for school and Mum phoned - but it didn't sound like Mum," says Izzy, 28, now a soloist."She said Rupert had been in an accident and the police were coming to pick me up to take me to the hospital. But I soon realised it was a lot more serious than a broken leg." In fact, Rupert, now 34, was on a life-support machine.

When Mc Fly's Harry Judd married his bride Izzy Johnston four days before Christmas, their wedding day was filled with unforgettable special moments.

Not only was it attended by celebrities from the world of music and sport, but the newlyweds' carefully choreographed first dance showed why Harry had scooped the 2011 Strictly Come Dancing glitterball.

However, the most poignant moment was when Izzy's eldest brother Rupert, who'd suffered a brain injury in a car crash at 18, stood in front of the packed church and played his French horn to perfection, moving many to tears.

"Everyone in the church who knew what had happened to Rupert was behind him and willing him on when he stood up to play," says Izzy, a former violinist with electric string quartet Escala, who found fame on Britain's Got Talent. We all knew how special it was that he was there at all, never mind playing the instrument he loved." At 6am on a February morning in 1997, two policemen arrived at Izzy's family home in Harpenden, Herts, to tell her parents Gill and David that Rupert had been in a car accident.

He had been driving home from Somerset in the early hours.

Izzy says: "Ironically, he was rushing back to get back to a music lesson he didn't want to miss." No one ever discovered why he crashed only minutes from home, but it is thought he could have nodded off at the wheel and momentarily lost control.

"It was so bad there was talk of switching off the life-support machine.

But he kept fighting even though the odds were against him for a long time," says Izzy.

"Before the accident, Rupert was always getting into mischievous trouble.
