Kym Marsh to host Pride of Manchester Awards again to honour city’s unsung heroes

Sam Thompson, 26, will receive the Special Recognition Award after campaigning to raise awareness and reducing the stigma for sexual assaults against men.

In September 2016, Sam was raped by two men but says he felt worse after reporting the horrific ordeal.

He says he was asked questions about his sexuality as well as made to feel as though he was lying.

Sam is now a Survivors ambassador, working with Coronation Street, advising soap bosses on the David Platt storyline. He also helps trains Greater Manchester Police officers on how to deal with male survivors of sexual assault.

Other winners include Sgt Lee Valentine, DC Marsha Selby, DC Ashleigh Williams, DC Tom Wright, Adam Ward and Miah Uddin who receive the Emergency Services Award after tackling a terrorist who unleashed hell at Manchester’s Victoria Station following a triple stabbing on New Year’s Eve in 2018.

The MEN Pride of Manchester Awards, in partnership with TSB, will premiere on youtube.com/prideofbritainawards this Thursday at 7pm.

The 46-year-old shared the emotional impact of loosing her dad so young. She said: “My name’s Amanda Owen and my dad died when I was 17.

“So my dad was called Maurice, he was a giant of a man. He was six foot nine, he was just a real gentle giant.”

However, she also explained how she did feel some regret about the time they shared.

Amanda continued: “We had a great relationship but I suppose thinking about it now, I maybe would have made more of the time that we have together.

“If I’d known I was going to lose him at such a young age.

“So if I could give one piece of advice or message to any children or young people out there who, sadly this year have lost parents, grandparents, relatives or friends.

“I would just say ‘try and find it within yourself to talk about how you’re feeling. Don’t keep those emotions all bottled up inside’.”

Amanda was speaking as part of the Barnardo’s Believe in Me campaign, which looks at how bereavement impacts young people.

As the UK’s leading children’s charity, this is hoped to raise awareness for how young people can seek support.

 “And here I am, I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first,” he finished.

Gogglebox Jenny leaving caravan for emotional reunion with husband

Gogglebox’s Jenny and Lee have made an announcement about their future on the show.

Earlier this week, panicked fans worried that the funny pair were leaving the hit Channel 4 show after they said Jenny was preparing to leave the caravan.

But Jenny and Lee have confirmed they will be back together and filming for the next series of Gogglebox in September.

And as Jenny goes home, it is time to see her husband once again after three months in the caravan.

To sign up for the Hull Live newsletter, click here.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Jenny was forced to move in with Lee and his husband Steve in their caravan so they could film for Gogglebox and keep fans of the show entertained.

They posted on their Instagram page: “Thanks for watching everyone. Time for Jenny to see her husband after 3 months with me. Really going to miss her tho. Have a great summer everyone. SEE YOU ALL IN SEPTEMBER xx”

The series has ended on a high for the duo though, as they kept fans in stitches with their antics on Friday night’s episode. Lee walked into the room holding what he believed to be a raunchy pair of Jenny’s “knickers”.

“Jenny are these yours?” he asked before a confused Jenny responded: “No they aren’t!”

“Are you sure? Well what is it – I thought it was a pair of your knickers?” Lee asked now making fun of his friend.

A bewildered Jenny then asked: “What me in them?”

“Well, they are not mine,” Lee said, going on to admit: “I looked again and it’s a bag isn’t it?

“It’s for the fruit! Did you think I would wear them?” Jenny said as Lee held up a netted shopping bag, accusing his friend of wearing them in place of raunchy underwear.

“Well you never know because some people at a certain age get a second wind!” Lee laughed

“I’m still on my first!” Jenny piped up, the two now creasing.
