DAN WALKER: I've had so many incredible memories of working on this program and wonderful moments that this role has given me. I don't think-- we all know, don't we-- there aren't many jobs where you get the chance to give a voice to people who don't have a voice and to tell other people's stories. And I think that's what we all love doing more than anything else. And it's been a real privilege to sit here and to present this program, which we all know means an awful lot to so many people who watch. So the other thing I want to say is thank you for tuning in. Thank you for all the comments, the kind messages, and the many lovely words over the years. Thank you all. And there's so many cards this week.

- I know a lot.
