The Pride of Britain Awards airs on November 5th 2019. And this year the show is even more important as it’s celebrating its 20th anniversary!
Carol Vorderman has been presenting the awards for the last twenty years and she’s, of course, back again for the 2019 show.
The show, which celebrates Britain’s unsung heroes, is set to warm the nation’s heart from 8 pm on ITV.
From a whopping 20,000 nominations, the recipients have been chosen by a panel of judges. And as always, celebrities from film, TV, music and sport will be on hand to present the awards.
There’s one recipient of an award who stands out from the rest and that’s Dante Marvin.
Who is Dante Marvin?
Dante Marvin is an 11-year-old boy from Liverpool with a very inspiring story.
Dante has brittle bone disease and scoliosis. According to the Pride of Britain website, “he has spent most of his young life in and out of the hospital for treatment, including painful rod replacement surgery in his legs.”
His life motto is:
There are no disabilities, only abilities.
In 2019, he is the recipient of a Child of Courage award.
