Leon Jackson checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace on Thursday (October 2). ‘The X Factor’ season four winner writes:
Wow I had such a great time at Tuesday’s Pride of Britain awards! What an absolutely amazing night. I felt honored to be part of such a prestigious event. I was even more thrilled to be asked to present an award to a fellow Scottish lad alongside Louis Walsh and Danni Minougue. The award was presented to a great hero, 9 year old Nathan Thompson. Nathan saved his mother from an attacker who broke into their home and tried to kill her. For a young child to protect his mother like that is truly amazing and inspirational and it really highlights the real heroes, young or old, that we have in Britain. He was also very funny on stage and at one point he pointed into the audience at something and we found out that he wanted to get his sister to come up on stage and meet me which was really nice…what an amazing kid!
It was a real heartfelt night and I managed to meet a few of TV legends also such as Bruce Forsyth, Russell Brand and Ronnie Corbett who were all funny as hell and really nice. And also Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey was there and offered his words of encouragement to me which was just unbelievable!!!
