The 19th an­nual Daily Mir­ror Pride of Bri­tain Awards, part­nered with TSB, re­turns with a host of fa­mous faces, in­clud­ing Prince Wil­liam, Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, Labour leader Jeremy Cor­byn, Sir Rod Ste­wart and Lady Penny, Sharon and Ozzy Os­bourne, Dame Joan Collins, Ed Sheeran, Jamie Oliver, Ni­cole Scherzinger, Der­mot O’Leary, Paddy McGuin­ness and Liam Payne.

TV favourites from Strictly Come Danc­ing and The X Fac­tor were joined by gi­ants of sport, com­edy and pol­i­tics as more than 100 of our big­gest stars gath­ered at London’s Grosvenor House last week to pay tribute to the na­tion’s un­sung heroes.

Hosted bril­liantly as ever by Carol Vor­der­man, the show is packed with in­spir­ing, up­lift­ing sto­ries that will re­duce even the most hard­ened viewer to tears.

The in­cred­i­ble win­ners range from five- year- old Suzi McCash who di­alled 999 to save her mum, Rowena’s, life aged just four, to dare­devil grand­mother Dilys Price who holds a record for sky div­ing, and the fire­fight­ers and com­mu­nity of Gren­fell.

Prince Wil­liam was there to cel­e­brate the out­stand­ing achieve­ments of the Manch­ester medics who worked to save lives af­ter the ter­ror at­tack at Manch­ester Arena in May.

And see what hap­pened when some of our win­ners were sur­prised by the likes of Si­mon Cow­ell and David Beck­ham.

With more bril­liant celebrity sur­prises and de­serv­ing win­ners, it all makes for two hours of truly un­miss­able and life- af­firm­ing TV.
