Sir Cliff Richard will make his major first television appearance since an investigation into child sex allegations was dropped.

The veteran singer, who has launched legal action against the BBC and South Yorkshire Police for alleged collusion in the case, will step out at the Pride of Britain Awards along with Prime Minister Theresa May, the Prince of Wales and a host of famous faces.

After retreating from public life during the two-year probe that saw albums and a biography postponed, Sir Cliff said he was "feeling stronger already" and looking forward to the event.

"It was a matter of being patient. I knew it wasn't true. I got through it but I will never forget it," the 76-year-old told the newspaper.

"It's an experience I wouldn't want to repeat or for anyone else to go through. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and I'm trusting that is true."

Richard is due to present an award at the ceremony, which will be screened on ITV on Tuesday.
