Tania said: "I was so shocked when I was told I'd won. It was such a surprise and really surreal. I was like, 'Me, are you sure?' Good things don't happen to me. I'm proud of how far I've come."

Tania, now an Assistant Ambulance Practitioner for the London Ambulance Service who became homeless at 17 and went on to suffer an abusive relationship.

She added: "This is the biggest thing that’s happened to me and I'm just getting my head around it. Someone once told me that it's not what you’ve done, it's what you've overcome, and that has helped me accept that I deserve it.

"As a child, I loved Casualty and Holby City where ambulances rescued people and wished that someone would rescue me. But when I grew up I became an ambulance worker and rescued myself."
