Ozzy Osbourne Will Appear At Pride of Britain Awards Ceromony (10/11/2005)

Britain's unsung heroes are due to be honoured by the Prince of Wales and Prime Minister Tony Blair at The Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards.

More than 100 stars from showbusiness, sport and politics are expected to salute the winners - who have all proven an inspiration to others.

The gala event, being held at London Television Centre, will be hosted by Carol Vorderman and feature appearances by former US President Bill Clinton, David Beckham, Catherine Zeta Jones, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Ant & Dec and Sir Bob Geldof.

Tony Blair described the ceremony as a chance to "celebrate what's best about our country".

Charles said: "These remarkable awards remind us of the compassion, decency and courage which still exists in every corner of the land."

All the 18 winners have done something exceptional - including acts of remarkable courage, displays of unbelievable compassion, and acts of outstanding achievement.

They include Hope Farrelly, from Essex, who at eight became Britain's youngest midwife when she delivered her mother's baby, and Tony Baker, from Usk, south Wales, who took on two armed robbers after only popping out for a pint of milk.

Hope, now nine, was shocked and thrilled when David Beckham himself came to tell her she had won the award.

Also being honoured is Jane Tomlinson who, despite suffering from terminal cancer, raised 1 million for charity by taking part in sporting fundraisers including a cycle across Europe.

London's emergency services, hospital staff and transport workers get a special "beyond the call of duty" award for their reaction to the July 7 bombings.
