Sun NHS awards were packed with celebs from Anthony Joshua to Piers Morgan – but they asked for selfies with our winners

OUR inspirational Who Cares Wins Awards nominees were the stars of the show on Tuesday night – and they have the selfies to prove it.

Celebrities including boxing champ Anthony Joshua, singer Mel B and Love Islander Olivia Attwood posed for snaps with the healthcare heroes.

The awards, sponsored by the National Lottery and in partnership with NHS Charities Together, honour medics, scientists and ordinary people for their exceptional strength and courage. 

Host Davina McCall said before the show: “So much news is negative. But there are acts of miraculous good. Here we show and tell you about them. I’ve got a pack of industrial tissues ready.”

The winners will be revealed on TV this Sunday but for those who can’t wait, here is a peek backstage at our bash.
