Pride of Britain tonight

The Pride of Britain Awards 2007

According to Paul O’Grady she sang This Is My Life behind the scenes. Paul said she was so funny, he never stopped laughing!

Carol Vorderman hosts the annual ceremony celebrating the achievements of Britain’s unsung heroes.

Those honoured include the 12-year-old boy who saved his family from a crazed attacker brandishing a meat cleaver, an air stewardess who delivered a 1lb premature baby at 30,000ft and Britain’s oldest man, a war veteran who still visits schools to talk to the children at the grand old age of 111.

Those paying tribute include Prince Charles, Gordon Brown, JK Rowling, Ant and Dec, Peter Kay, Shirley Bassey, Jamie Oliver, Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Lewis Hamilton, Wayne Rooney and Davina McCall

Tonight on ITV 1 from 9:00pm to 10:30pm

PS Superfan Helen saw the Paul O’Grady Show as well today, and wrote this welcome message:

“Dear Peggy,
Wow, love the new look site.
Have just been watching the Paul O’Grady Show and he’s been talking to Carol Vorderman about the Pride of Britain Award Show and the after show high jinks he and DSB had. As always, the great Dame doesn’t go anywhere without her sense of humour and is great fun. All that and THE most fabulous voice: What a combination.
Best wishes,
Helen.xx”
