2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Celebrity of the Year Award

Josh is a former rugby player turned reality star and influencer with a passion for fitness.  He is the co-owner of Runna, a training app for all running abilities. Earlier this year the TV personality became the first person to run a marathon in each of the 76 cities in the UK on consecutive days. His mammoth challenge – Run 4 1 Million – began on 27 February with his first marathon in Inverness, and finished 13 May in London at the gates of Buckingham Palace. Having battled with mental health issues since his teenage years, and aware that suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 50, Patterson aims to raise £1 million for suicide prevention charity Samaritans through his attempt. So far, Josh has raised over £320,000, not only raising money but also awareness for suicide prevention.
