Each year, a judging panel made up of Radio 1 DJs and former teen hero winners picks the winners of the teen awards.

Last year, the winners had set up a mental health charity, provided a voice for children in care and inspired others to tackle obesity, anxiety and depression.

It was also the year that Gemma Collins fell through the stage.

The ceremony recognises some of the year's best music, online, sport and entertainment stars - as voted for by Radio 1 listeners.
