When a high-speed, head-on crash left two men trapped inside burning wreckage, three courageous passers-by risked their own lives to save them.

 

When a disturbed man walked into a busy hospital, set himself on fire and was heading towards the maternity ward, two unlikely heroes thought nothing of their own safety to tackle him.

 

When Jonny Benjamin sat on the edge of Waterloo Bridge, about to jump into the icy Thames to end his life, hundreds of Londoners walked past.

 

The death of his beautiful son from meningitis is never far from Steve Dayman’s mind.

 

His indomitable spirit and infectious enthusiasm as he refused to let terminal illness stop him living life to the full made Stephen Sutton a national hero.

 

Nothing shows the strength of the human spirit quite like the incredible performances of our heroic athletes at the Invictus Games.

About Pride of Britain

The Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards in partnership with TSB, celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people who make our world a better place. Screened on ITV in October, it is the biggest awards show of its kind on British TV.

Nominated by the public, the winners are from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the country. Their achievements are awe-inspiring and a lesson to us all. They say they are ordinary people, but their acts are truly extraordinary.

Since the first Pride of Britain in 1999, royalty, prime ministers, and hundreds of leading figures from showbusiness, sport, politics and the arts have all taken part. Hosted by Carol Vorderman, the Awards attract an audience of around five million viewers every year in a primetime slot on ITV - making it the highest rated awards show of its kind on British television.

Our winners come from tens of thousands of public nominations and stories of remarkable individuals discovered by our team of researchers.

They are whittled down to a shortlist from which our judging panel, made up of celebrated figures in national life, chooses the winners.

They will be honoured at the glittering Pride of Britain Awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House in London.

The 2017 Pride of Britain Awards will be screened on ITV on Tuesday 31st October.

In 2016, TSB and Trinity Mirror have joined forces in an exciting new partnership to activate communities all around Britain and celebrate ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

We’re very excited here at HQ, not only is this our first official blog of 2016 but it’s also the start of a very special new partnership for us. As you know we’re all about honouring outstanding individuals who have made a difference to their community.
