Every year the stars don their fanciest dresses (well the ladies do at least) to celebrate those courageous and very special children and adults who deserve recognition. The Saturdays, Peter Andre, The Wanted and the X Factor judges were just a few of the celebs who walked the red carpet at last night’s The Pride of Britain Awards.

The stars turned out in force to the Pride Of Britain Awards last night, including an excited-looking Peter Andre who kept a protective hand on his partner Emily MacDonagh’s growing baby bump.

Myleene Klass and Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden looked incredibly sophisticated, but the cheeky girls were reportedly seen squeezing each other’s bums for a laugh.

And they weren’t the only one who fancied a little bottom-squeezing action – Sarah Harding revealed to 3am that she bizarrely wanted to pinch Louis Walsh’s little behind and scream: “Potatoes!”

Meanwhile Nicole Scherzinger had her advances rejected, after she tried to plant a kiss on the cheek of brave six-year-old Harley Lane as she handed him the Child of Courage award.

The Stockport boy lost all his limbs from meningitis, but recently completed the 1.5km Bupa Mini Great Manchester Run wearing prosthetic limbs, raising more than £1,000 for the hospital that saved his life.

David Beckham was shown presenting the Teenager of Courage Award to Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani teenager who campaigned for girls' education and was shot in the head by the Taliban.

The father-of-four told her: "You're an amazing young lady, a very special young lady, and your story has moved millions of people around the world. I'm so privileged and honoured to present this award to you."

Clearly it was an emotional and humbling night for many celebs, with the stars tweeting their praise for all those who were being honoured that evening.

The Saturdays Rochelle Humes tweeted: "Well that was a lovely evening! Met some true heroes! A pleasure to be in that kind of company! #prideofbritain."

Myleene Klass told her followers: "Have no mascara left to cry off. #Prideofbritainawards."

Other famous names showing their admiration and respect for Britain's unsung heroes included Jimmy Carr, James Corden, Michael McIntyre, Pixie Lott and Katherine Jenkins.

Sporting heroes Usain Bolt and Jenson Button, and TV stars Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, David Walliams and Jamie Oliver were also a few of the celebs involved in last night's festivities.
