Bury fashion icon Jsky set the red carpet alight as he posed for photos at the Pride of Manchester Awards in an event he took part in as a judge.

The awards welcomed a host of A-list celebrities including including Moira Stuart, Ricky Hatton, Rebecca Adlington and Spice Girl Melanie Brown joining the cohort to celebrate local heroes.

Singer, songwriter and BBC presenter Jsky was a judge for the event for the second year running alongside Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham and others.

Dressed in an opulent, black, sequin and pearl encrusted floor length gown, Jsky sent flashbulbs popping as his made as his debut at the event.

He said: "This was my second time judging the event, but my first time at in person event because of the lockdown last year.

“It was so wonderful to be there in person celebrating the incredible stories, and commitments displayed by all the winners we had selected. It really was the greatest honour.”

Jsky recently landed a new show on BBC Radio Manchester which airs weekly on Wednesday nights covering the latest talking points and news stories.

The event will take place at The Point, Emirates with live music, a charity raffle and Pan-Asian dining.
