Ex-Derbyshire MP Edwina Currie in 'I'm A Celebrity'

Former South Derbyshire MP Edwina Currie is to enter the 'I'm A Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here' jungle.

The 68-year-old says she probably won't be seen as a motherly figure in the camp as it is "not her national reputation".

I will quite possibly tell them if they are annoying me. Or you can pull a face or a gesture. It really does depend what they are doing. I will only get cross with those who don’t try. If you sign up to do something like this show, then you have to do your best. If anyone is pulling a fast one or letting the side down, then they might get a tongue-lashing. On the other hand, if they are really upset, I hope I am sympathetic.

Midlands winners attend Pride of Britain awards

The Midlands had three big winners at the Pride of Britain awards this year - including the first one ever given posthumously. That went to teenage cancer patient Stephen Sutton, who raised millions of pounds before he died earlier this year.

Our other two winners were a ten year-old girl and and a foster mother in her sixties. Andy Bevan reports.

Pride of Britain: Foster mum who's cared for over 1,200

It was Strictly stardom for our most senior winner at The Pride of Britain Awards last night.

Betty McGlinchey, who lives in Coventry, has been a foster mum extraordinaire. She has looked after more than 1,200 children over 34 years, offering them a loving home when they needed it most.

Sir Bruce Forsyth presented Betty with the Good Morning Britain Local Hero Award.

Tune into ITV at 8pm this evening to watch Sir Bruce lead her into an impromptu waltz across the stage.

Mother: Stephen 'would have loved' Pride of Britain

The mother of Stephen Sutton said he 'would have loved it' at last night's Pride of Britain awards ceremony in London.

Jane Sutton, who collected a posthumous Pride of Britain award with other family members on his behalf, said: "He would have been laughing knowing that I was up there on the stage because he knew how much I didn't like the limelight."

The 19 year-old, from Burntwood in Staffordshire, raised more than £5 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust before he died of bowel cancer in May.
