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.
