The X Factor judges, Russell Brand and other top celebs have joined the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate some of the nation's unsung heroes.

The royal couple met a host of celebrities as they arrived at the Pride of Britain Awards.

All four X Factor judges were in attendance, and Dannii Minogue revealed that Camilla is a fan of the show.

Dannii said: "I was desperate to know if they watched The X Factor and they do.

"Camilla said they go between Strictly and X Factor.

"She's backing Matt who is one of mine, which is nice."

Charles and Camilla also met Russell, Susan Boyle, Bruce Forsyth and Sir Alan Sugar.

The Prince awarded two prizes at the ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

One is a new category, the Littlewoods.com Young Fundraiser of the Year, and the other, The Prince's Trust Young Achiever gong, went to 27-year-old Nathan James from Leeds.

After sharing a prison cell with a heroin addict, Mr James embarked on a mission to inspire disadvantaged youths out of the same cycle of unemployment and crime.
