Carol Vorderman and Susanna Reid read moving poem for Pride of Britain launch

Celebrities banded together with previous Pride of Britain winners to give a sweet tribute to the nation’s unsung heroes.

The tribute showed Carol Vorderman, Susanna Reid and Peter Andre read out an emotional poem alongside past winners to encourage the British public to “remember our heroes”.

The poem comes after nominations for the Pride of Britain Awards 2021 were launched last week with members of the public being called upon to nominate ordinary people who have achieved extraordinary things.

The message reads: “We remember our heroes. Remember them forever.

"We learn their names, their faces. Feel their places in our hearts.

"We know their pain, their sacrifices, and passions. Hold them close.

"They are all around us. They are our neighbours, they're relatives and friends. They are ordinary people. You and me.

"In extraordinary times of sacrifice, bravery and belief. All around us they inspire us and move us and change us for the good.

"So today, now here, who will we remember? Whose faces, passions and pain. Where are today's heroes?”

One of the previous winners to take part was six-year-old Tony Hudgell, who won last year’s Good Morning Britain Young Fundraiser Award.

The little boy was abused by his biological parents to the point that his legs had to be amputated by doctors.

However, the brave hero managed to raise £1.5 million for the hospital that saved his life by walking 10km on his prosthetics aided by crutches.
