The chart-topping band backed the Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain tour before a gig in Newcastle today

Chart-topping boy band McFly welcomed the Mirror’s Pride of Britain tour to Newcastle today with a rallying cry for nominations.

Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones and Tom Fletcher backed our search for Britain’s unsung heroes before a gig in the north east.

Harry said: “We have been lucky enough to come to the awards and even present one. It is a very emotional night.”

Tom added: “You spend the whole night trying not to cry.”

Pride of Britain, sponsored by Lidl, honours ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and will be screened once again on ITV1 in October.

In Newcastle city centre, Benidorm star Crissy Rock dropped by to urge people to nominate.

She said: “I think Pride of Britain is wonderful, it celebrates all that is great about people who work unrewarded for others.”

The bus – provided by National Express and emblazoned with a huge picture of awards host Carol Vorderman – is on a 900-mile journey around the country as part of our most ambitious quest yet to find Britain’s unsung heroes.

Earlier in the day at RAF Leeming, Yorks, we met the RAF’s 90 Signals Unit – tactical communications wing, the longest serving unit in Afghanistan, and 34 Squadron RAF regiment.

The airmen provide and support communications for the RAF, often under fire from Taliban attack.

Flt Lt Holly Smith spent four months in Afghanistan where she played the bugle to mark the repatriations of fallen servicemen and women.

Cpl Joanne James, 38, juggles bringing up three young children with her husband David, 30, serving abroad.

She said: “It’s hard work and David is a real family man so it is hard for him being away.

“I am due to be sent overseas when he gets back so it will be even harder.

“Often other sections of the services get the headlines but behind the scenes there are thousands of people doing good work.”

As well as filling out a form on board when the bus reaches your region, you can record a video message which may be used on the ITV1 show.

You can also enter a competition to win tickets to the awards.

Every nomination we receive will be carefully considered by the Pride of Britain team.
