in Los Angeles. Swayze will be remem- bered as dance instructor Johnny Castle who swept Greys debutante off her feet. Swayze was warned not to accept the part amid fears that the low-budget movie would flop but it became a massive hit and was the first film to sell one million copies on video. He said the film, famous for the line Nobody puts Baby in a corner, became a phenomenon that took his life into insanity. Many women joined the 100- plus club marking the number of times they had seen the film. Swayze said: That is the movie that sent my world into hyperspace. Today Grey said: He was fearless and insisted on always doing his own stunts, so it was not surprising to me that the war he waged on his cancer was so courageous and dignified. When I think of him, I think of being in his arms when we were kids, dancing, having a blast, doing this tiny movie we thought no one would see. Swayze was diag- nosed with cancer early last year but continued to work, writing his memoirs and starring in TV series The Beast. He had chemotherapy but opted not to use painkilling drugs because he feared they would take the edge off his gritty perform- ance as an undercover FBI agent. His condition deteriorated suddenly. Swayze, a smoker for decades, continued his habit as he was being treated. He missed just one day off work while filming the show. How do you nurture a positive attitude when all the statistics say youre a dead man? You go to work, he said. He told interviewer Barbara Walters: One thing I am not going to do is chase staying alive. You spend so much time chasing staying alive, you wont live. He earned a Golden Globe nomination for Dirty Dancing, and the song he sang from the soundtrack, Shes Like The Wind, went to No 3 in the US Billboard charts. A second massive success followed in 1990 with Ghost. Swayze fought a long battle with alcoholism after the death of his father and his sis- ters suicide. He had a minor part in the cult classic Donnie Darko and appeared on the London stage in 2006 in Guys And Dolls.

A TODDLER left screaming in agony when his kidneys shut down following an outbreak of E.coli at a petting farm is recovering in hospital, his family said today. Alfie Weaver spent nine days in excruciating pain after visiting Godstone Farm in Surrey. But the three-year-old, who has since undergone two blood trans- fusions is now speaking again. At his home in Redhill, Surrey, Alfies grandfather, who did not want to be named, said: Its like a dream come true. He has been in agony for nine days. But now hes a different person. It was quite emotional. Alfies condition was said to be stable. The toddler and his six-year-old sister were taken to visit the farm during the recent August bank holiday -- several days after the first case of E.coli was reported and con- nected to the premises. Their mother, Gemma, said: After our last visit Alfie told me, My tummy hurts. He grew des- perately ill and started passing blood. I was terrified. Mrs Weaver, 24, from Reigate, Surrey, said she was disgusted health authorities had not closed the farm earlier.
