Rylan Clark and David Tennant win big at LGBT Awards as tribute paid to Robin Windsor

Rylan Clark and David Tennant have won big at this year's British LGBT Awards as Strictly Come Dancing star Robin Windsor was remembered in a touching tribute.

The annual awards ceremony took place this evening in London, with Julian Clary as host for the 10th anniversary. He opened the event with a monologue which left audience members howling with laughter. Business leaders and organisations with a track record of promoting LGBTQ+ people and policies as well as equality and diversity were honoured in front of the star-studded crowd.

Doctor Who star David Tennant was awarded the LGBT+ Celebrity Ally award for his vocal and ongoing support of the trans community. He was presented his award by fellow advocate Katherine Ryan, who won the award in 2023. The Tenth Doctor said: “I am honoured to win this award. I am inspired by all of you here tonight.”
