Miliband: White trousers 'among many fashion faux pas'

The Labour leader Ed Miliband has revealed he "had many fashion faux pas in the 80s", admitting "I think it may have been white trousers and not a nice v-neck."

Earlier in the year, Mr Miliband told Now magazine he wasn't "massively interested in clothes" and that his wardrobe contained "big jumpers and nasty corduroys."

Speaking to Absolute Radio at last night's Pride of Britain Awards, Mr Miliband confessed he did not know who the pop group The Saturdays were as they were being interviewed next to him.

He said he had not watched this year's X Factor, but did reveal he was sitting on a table with judge Nicole Scherzinger so he could catch up on the series.

Carol Vorderman hails stories of bravery and courage

Carol Vorderman has hailed the Pride of Britain Awards for its stories of bravery and courage after a "celebratory" night at the 15th annual awards last night.

Vorderman, who presents the show, admitted some of the inspiring stories left her close to tears.

The former Countdown presenter revealed that eight-year-old Harley Lane, who had both of his arms and legs amputated as a result of meningtistis, rejected a kiss from X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger at the awards last night.
