Radio 1 honours teen heroes at Wembley

Three inspirational Teen Heroes were honoured alongside singers at BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards, which took place at London’s Wembley Arena on Sunday.

The awards ceremony, which was hosted by Radio 1 presenter Nick Grimshaw and Mollie King from The Saturdays, celebrated the achievements of outstanding young people in the UK.

Presenters Vernon Kay, Aled Haydn Jones and Fearne Cotton gave out the awards during the event, in which Olly Murs, Tom Daley, Rupert Grint, The Wanted, The Inbetweeners and Ed Sheeran all gained recognition.

The Teen Awards was attended by almost 9,000 14-17 year-olds and featured performances from Pixie Lott, Jason Derulo, Cher Lloyd, Rizzle Kicks, Joe Jonas, One Direction, and Ed Sheeran.

The newly crowned Teen Heroes were nominated by Radio 1 listeners and chosen by a panel of celebrities including headliner Pixie, Oritse Williams from JLS, Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJs and experts from youth organisations. Radio 1 received over 700 nominations.

Ben Cooper, Acting Controller, BBC Radio 1, said: “This year’s Teen Hero stories are very inspirational and I’m delighted that Radio 1 continues to celebrate young people and the really positive contribution they make to society.”
