Pride of Britain: Winner slaps Boris after praise for award

Pride of Britain winners Ella and Amy Meeks were dismayed at this year’s ceremony when they were sent a special message from Boris Johnson.

The two young climate change activists, aged 16 and 18, were the recipients of the Environmental Champion Award after founding Kids Against Plastic, a youth social action group that is now a registered charity.

The prime minister wanted to praise them and filmed a special video message for them live from Rome.

Mr Johnson said: “It is very fitting that in the year, the time when we come together to try to tackle climate change, the Pride of Britain Awards should have a special category for Environmental Champion.

“I’m happy to congratulate the winners, Amy and Ella, for what you’ve done and all of your achievements, especially in dealing with plastic pollution.

“You acted when so many others might have found it easy to just pass by. So thank you for what you did.

“And everyone at Pride of Britain, I just want to say that every year Pride of Britain gives an intense, emotional story about those acts of bravery, of kindness, of devotion that allow us all to be proud of our country and proud of our country. Britain. ” Thank you very much.

As the camera cut back to Ella and Amy, host Ashley Banjo asked them what they thought of the PM’s message.

“Alas, certainly unexpected yes!” they replied, before in vain added, “He’s not peeled yet, though, let’s see what happens at COP first!”

Ashley laughed and replied, “Don’t mess with Amy and Ella, Mr. Prime Minister!”

The COP26 summit is currently taking place in Glasgow and has seen countries come together to address plans to tackle the climate crisis.

COP26 will be the 26th summit of its kind.
