Military Awards celebrate exceptional achievements in the armed forces
10th December 2014

The Military Awards celebrate the exceptional achievements of our armed forces.

The awards, also known as The Millies or the Night of Heroes, were established to honour the work British troops do for their country.

To decide who wins the trophies will be a star studded judging panel, made up by Penny Lancaster, Lorraine Kelly, Andy McNab and Jeremy Clarkson.

These awards are particularly pertinent this year as British troops withdraw from Afghanistan as well as it being the centenary of the start of the First World War.

The awards took place at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London Live’s Toby Earle was there.

Simon Cowell spoke about whether he ever considered a career in the military.

On the red carpet Toby caught up with actor Damian Lewis and food writer Mary Berry.

 

Labour leader Ed Miliband discussed the importance of the occasion.

 

Greg Rutherford, David Harewood and Rebecca Adlington were also in attendance.
