Gareth Southgate hails four England unsung heroes as Three Lions ease into Euro 2020 semis

“But we have got to make those decisions, the right call for the right game, the right system, but all of the players have been brilliant.”

Southgate does not want to get carried away but is delighted to create such joy back home.

“Look, it’s fabulous,” he continued. “I suppose it’s still sinking in a bit. We’re in another semi-final, that’s three in three years.

“We obviously want to go the step further, the two steps further, I know what will be happening at home – and that’s great.

“It’s lovely to send everybody on a Saturday night, beer in hand, whatever it is and they should enjoy it. I’m chuffed that the two performances has brought so much enjoyment and happiness to people.”

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.

Tyler Perry mentioned as unsung hero in royal couple's escape to America

ATLANTA — Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, spoke to Oprah Winfrey in a nationally-televised two-hour interview on Sunday night, marking their first in-depth interview since leaving the royal family. 
As the story of the couple’s departure from the UK unfolded, one detail emerged that involved Atlanta media mogul Tyler Perry. 
In the interview on CBS, Markle told Winfrey that when the couple first moved to America, Perry offered her, Prince Harry, and their infant son Archie his home and full security detail.
Perry is well-known in Atlanta and elsewhere for his generosity, but the details of the event involving Markle, the prince, and their son were especially shocking, given that the Monarchy had rescinded the child’s security even though the couple was living under a significant threat level. 
Following the revelation, many tweets emerged praising Perry’s actions in the face of the royal family.
