Stephen Teap and his children have been invited to the set of the Late Late Toy Show.

The Cork man has been campaigning for the better part of a year following the death of his wife, who was twice given incorrect smear test results and subsequently died of cervical cancer.

Carrigaline native Irene Teap was diagnosed with stage two cancer in 2015 and died on July 26 last year, leaving behind two young sons, after two false negative tests in 2010 and 2013.

Limerick woman Vicky Phelan, who is now terminal with the illness, brought the controversy surrounding CervicalCheck to light following a court case that she won.

Both the Phelan and Teap families attended the set of the famous show today, Stephen with his sons Oscar and Noah, ahead of it airing on RTÉ One tomorrow night.

“We were absolutely delighted when we got the invitation,” said Mr Teap.

“Oscar was four going on five last year for the show and he really got into it so he was very excited when he heard the news.

“Noah is three now and I’m sure they’ll enjoy themselves,” he added.

“An RTÉ producer contacted myself and Vicky with the invitation and we were delighted to head up to Dublin for it.” 

The Teaps were also invited to Fota Wildlife Park’s Christmas Experience last week through the Cork Cancer Care Centre.

“We saw Santa there as well so it’s a nice build up to Christmas for the kids and great to see a smile on their faces,” said Mr Teap.
