The stars were joined by Tom Jones, James Blunt, Enrique Iglesias, Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, Plan B and The Saturdays. The show was hosted by the best of the UK’s comedy talent – John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, Jack Dee, Jason Manford and Michael McIntyre – with a special guest appearance from Bruce Forsyth. Other acts who performed included Katherine Jenkins with Spelbound, Alesha Dixon and The Wanted. The concert was shown on BBC 1 and the coverage was presented by Cat Deeley.
All the acts waived their fees to make sure that even more proceeds go to H4H to ensure direct, practical support for the UK’s wounded soldiers.
Help For Heroes had this to say to those who supported the concert: “We would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who attended or supported the Heroes Concert in Twickenham on 12th September. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, and to those who treated a troop to a ticket, your support is very much appreciated. It was an incredible night and proved just how much support the British public has for our wounded Servicemen and women. Thank you so much!”
