On Tuesday night, ITV introduced us to some truly great Britons.


Hosted by Carol Vorderman, the Pride of Britain awards paid tribute to people who had displayed incredible bravery, dedication and selflessness, who had saved lives, been through terrible times but come back fighting, and inspired others – and it brought out some strong emotions in viewers...

It helped us get a sense of perspective, and appreciate what we have...

These people are so incredible and brave, makes you want to stop sweating the insignificant things and be more like them. #PrideofBritain

It made us feel humble...

It made us cry, of course...

Christ, its dusty or there's a lot of pollen in here or something *wipes eyes* #prideofbritain
