Furthermore, the organisers are delighted to announce that this year’s ceremony will be hosted by Nick Hewer from the BBC’s Apprentice & Channel 4’s Countdown. Not only will Nick will be ably assisted by his Countdown co-host Rachel Riley, but also, the evening’s entertainment will be enriched by not one, but two, comedians.

As well as the opportunity to enjoy Nick Hewer’s dry wit, our awards also offer our guests two top comedians.”
