Catherine Tyldesley, who plays Eva Price, nominated staff at Manchester’s Christie Hospital, one of Europe’s leading cancer treatment centres, for an honour.
She said: “It is the most incredible place, they make lives so much better. A couple of my friends and family have been helped by them. The job they do is awesome. A lot of us here at Coronation Street are right behind them for Pride of Britain. The awards are very important. They are one of the things, like fish and chips, pies, puddings and pubs that make me proud to be British.”
Charlie Condou (Marcus Dent) said: “I’m nominating all the NHS’s paediatric specialist nurses. They do a wonderful job and many families exist because of their fine work.”
The Mirror's Pride of Britain, sponsored by Lidl, is in its 14th year and honours ordinary people who do extraordinary things. There some good video interviews and pictures of the Pride of Britain bus on Coronation Street at the Mirror website here where you can also nominate your own unsung heroes.
