IN OCTOBER I have the great pleasure of hosting the 11th annual Pride of Britain Awards, sponsored by the The Co-operative, on ITV1.

It is an incredibly inspiring occasion where HRH Prince Charles and the Prime Minister join a star-studded audience to honour the nation's unsung heroes.

For me, it's the only TV awards show that really matters because the winners make our country a better place for us all.

We need your help to find the people who put the Great into Britain so we can give them the recognition they deserve.

You can nominate your unsung hero for a Pride of Britain award by filling in a form and posting it in boxes in Co-operative stores or email, online at or in writing to Pride of Britain Awards, PO Box 4014, London, E14 5BF.

Nominations must be received by Friday, August 7.

I know Pride of Britain 2009 will be another memorable night. we need you to help to make it so.
