Stars shine at Pride of Britain Awards to honour UK heroes

By David Wilcock

Gloria Hunniford was in the pink last night as she stepped out for the Pride of Britain Awards.

The Portadown broadcaster cut a dash on the red carpet, showing the next generation of celebrities how it's done.

David Beckham, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell were among the stars there to give their support to some of Britain's bravest people.

Former England football captain turned style icon Beckham flew in from New York to present an award at the event in central London, while Fernandez-Versini arrived arm-in-arm with former Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts.

They were joined by celebs including singers Peter Andre and Pixie Lott, television presenters Holly Willoughby and Susanna Reid, EastEnders' Barbara Windsor, Dragons' Den businessman Duncan Bannatyne, Olympians Tom Daley, Rebecca Adlington and Nicola Adams, England cricketer Stuart Broad and boyband Rixton.

The annual awards, founded in 1999, recognise courage, selflessness and achievement against the odds with nominees voted by members of the public.
