The star-studded gala saw some of the country's bravest citizens recognised in the Pride of Britain Awards.

More than 100 guests including Prince Charles, David Cameron, Amanda Holden, Olympic heroes and X Factor judges packed Grosvenor House in London's Park Lane.

Prince Charles, who takes part in the awards every year, said the event was a unique way to celebrate the achievements of remarkable people.

"These marvellous awards remind all of us that despite what one might think, throughout this country there are extraordinary people living selfless lives."

He also paid a heartfelt tribute to Team GB as he presented them with the Special Recognition Award.

And whilst on stage, he performed the Mobot with the Olympians and Paralympians in honour of long distance runner Mo Farah.

Surrounded by athletes such as Bradley Wiggins, Rebecca Adlington and Ellie Simmonds, the Prince hailed this country's unique people with a moving speech.

"I'm proud of the British Spirit at home and around the world.

"You'd be amazed at the number of letters I have had from people abroad and heads of state congratulating people of this country in doing something so remarkable and with such style.

"I am also so proud of Team GB. So let us build on this legacy and remind ourselves for once how special this country is when individuals operate as part of a team and let's just remember how good the British are at organising things.

"In the words of Carly Simon in the song for the Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, which I can never get out of my head: 'Nobody Does it Better'," he said.

David Beckham said he was always delighted to take part in the awards, adding: "The winners are always amazing, particularly the little children."

Among the winners, all nominated by the public, was Alice Pyne, 16, from Cumbria who received the teenager of courage award.

Alice was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma when she was 12 but has since become a powerful campaigner through her blog.

The teenager finally completed her "bucket list" earlier is year and as a result of one of her wishes has convinced 40,000 people in the UK to sign up to be a bone marrow donor.

She has also set up a charity called Alice's Escapes which provides holidays to the Lake District for families with seriously ill children.

Another teenager of courage award went to Jack Carroll, 14, of Yorkshire. Jack, who has cerebral palsy and needs a wheelchair to get around, uses stand-up comedy to laugh in the face of his chronic condition and inspire other disabled children.
