Kym Marsh to host Pride of Manchester Awards to honour region’s unsung heroes

Former singer and Corrie star Kym Marsh is returning once again to the Pride of Manchester Awards to honour the everyday heroes of our country that go unnoticed.

With ongoing coronavirus restrictions in place, the show has again ruled out the red carpet ahead of the event but the winners are sure to be celebrating in style.

Kym will be arriving at the Manchester Midland Hotel on Thursday to meet the heroes at the event, which is streaming on YouTube.

The show will have celebrity guests, like Emma Bunton, David Jason, Naga Muchetty, Amanda Holden and more in attendance as we watch the winners receive their awards and see their stories.

Winners of the event will also be put forward to receive a Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Award in partnership with TBS that will air on ITV in Autumn.

Kym Marsh said: "Pride of Manchester is so close to my heart, and I absolutely loved meeting this year's amazing winners. You can't help but be inspired by their stories, and it's a wonderful show."

While Gareth Lewis, TSB Regional Director, says “With so many incredible stories, judging this year’s winners of the Pride of Manchester Awards wasn’t easy. We are delighted for all the winners and especially for our TSB Community Heroes Claire and Chris, whose incredible work and dedication has helped provide support to struggling veterans.”

Football star Marcus Rashford will also be attending to deliver the first ever Marchus Rashford Children’s Champion award.

Champions will include people Christie Burns, who has campaigned for vital human right for transgender people since 1993, although her own story began in in the 50s.

Sam Thompson will be awarded for fighting to reduce stigma about sexual assault against men and many more heroes will take the stage for their extraordinary efforts.

With a star-studded attendance of celebrities and more importantly, heroes, you can watch the show on Thursday at 7pm on YouTube
