AJ, 33, said last night: “It’s the people you get to meet at events like this that are my inspiration.”

He was greeted by Young Hero nominee River Rhodes, eight.

He had been in contact with the Wolverhampton lad who is having chemo and radiotherapy for a tumour in his eye.

Rishi Sunak met Daisy Webb, 14, who nominated passers-by, paramedics and an air ambulance crew who saved her life when she collapsed on the way to school in Huntingdon, Cambs.

The PM told her: “It must be great having your own crew to look out for you.”

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “It’s important for all of us to come together on nights like this and hear what’s gone on and be humbled by it.”

TV’s Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid met another Young Hero nominee Jayden Sorhaindo.

The 12-year-old saved the life of her mum Natasha who suffered a head injury getting into the bath.

Susanna said: “She’s got more strength and courage than any of us.”

Sun columnist and TalkTV host Piers Morgan declared: “It’s rather nice to occasionally remind ourselves who the real heroes of our society are, those who work in our healthcare system. They are overworked and underpaid.”

Spice Girl Mel B said: “It’s amazing to see so many fab members of our hard-working NHS staff in their glad rags and having a day off. Everyone in the room should be commended.”

Joey Essex, who posed with Dancing on Ice partner Vanessa Bauer, praised docs who recently patched up his badly injured finger.

Virgin Radio DJ Chris Evans was among the star guests mobbed for selfies.

Olivia Attwood, fresh from her health scare in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, said: “It’s such an amazing night of celebrating amazing people.”

Paralympic swimming star Ellie Simmonds joined the bash after her recent stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

Other celebs included TV’s Vicki Pattison, singer Ellie Goulding, former England goalie David Seaman, Love Island pair Olivia and Alex Bowen and Kelsey Parker, wife of The Wanted star Tom, who died in March.

Sun columnist and TV star Ulrika Jonsson said: “Last year’s Who Cares Wins was so emotional, I’ve brought two pieces of kitchen roll.”

And TV’s Katie Piper remarked: “We all clapped in lockdown but it’s really nice to meet some of the heroes.”
