Nicole Scherzinger has spoken about how difficult she found it to keep her emotions in check at the Pride Of Britain awards.
The X Factor judge walked the red carpet with a host of other celebrities including Katherine Jenkins, Amanda Holden, Sarah Harding and the stars of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
Nicole, wearing a strapless velvet gown, said: "Their stories are inspirational. They've just got so much courage and resilience. It's unbelievable the stuff that these people have gone through and when I have to present an award I'm like how do I do that?
"I just want to hug everybody, tell them I love you and thank you for being so schamazing."
Myleene Klass wowed crowds in an asymmetric leopard print dress, while Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent went glam in a red floor-length gown and jewelled heels.
Pixie Lott wore a sheer white number with matching headband and Kimberley Walsh also went for head-to-toe white, while her ex-bandmate Sarah Harding sparkled in a gold sequinned dress.
Jimmy Carr also spoke of his admiration for the award winners from the red carpet.
He said: "Some of the people, it properly blows you away what they do. It's lovely because it's people that are caring, people who've been through a lot, people that are teachers, doing what are perceived to be ordinary jobs in an extraordinary and wonderful way."
Union J's Josh Cuthbert said: "This is a privilege to be here and to be on the red carpet right now it's surreal, but we're so happy to be here."
