This week Telly Today brings a choice pick of one worthy programme choice with ATV Today editor Doug Lambert. Tonight we are switched to ITV for November 6th.
One to Watch: Pride of Britain Awards 2018, 8pm, ITV, STV and UTV
The Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards, in partnership with TSB, returns once again to ITV with host Carol Vorderman, celebrities and public figures including HRH Prince Charles, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick and David Beckham celebrating this year’s truly remarkable winners at the Grosvenor House in London’s Park Lane.
Actor Sir David Jason, music mogul Simon Cowell, singing sensation Ellie Goulding, Major Tim Peake, Amanda Holden, Dermot O’Leary, singer and presenter Rochelle Humes, Olly Murs, Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham, singer Louise Redknapp, comedian John Bishop, Scarlett Moffatt, singer and actress Kimberley Walsh, radio DJ Roman Kemp, plus Kym Marsh will also be among those honouring the night’s heroes.
Inspirational winners of 2018 include the selfless British divers at the heart of the Thai cave rescue, who earned global praise for their bravery while rescuing the trapped youth football team. Further awe-inspiring stories centre on the remarkable efforts of a young widow tackling mental health issues in rural areas, a couple who dedicated their life to fundraising more than £230 million for children’s cancer research and a schoolboy who became the youngest person to scale the 440ft Old Man of Hoy in honour of his terminally-ill mum.
Alongside uplifting stories of courage, selflessness and beating the odds, there will be plenty of surprises on the night. Dancing superstar and Diversity frontman Ashley Banjo joins Carol when he surprises one of this years winner’s in a very special stunt.
Stars of Strictly, X Factor, Coronation Street, EastEnders and members of the England World Cup football team will all come together to make this a truly memorable night.
Carol hosts The Pride Of Britain Awards, tonight from 8pm on ITV.
