David Walliams is taking over from Dermot O’Leary as the host of the National Television Awards.

The Little Britain star will host the 2020 ceremony, which is due to be broadcast live on ITV on Tuesday 28th January.

It’ll be the 25th year of the awards, which are voted on by the public. ITV says: “A multiple NTA winner himself, David will take centre-stage as host of the UK’s leading awards show.”

Commenting on his new role, David Walliams says: “I am thrilled to be the new host of the NTAs, and will ensure I will also win them all.”

NTA’s creator and Executive Producer, Kim Turberville, says: “The National Television Awards are coming soon and we have two more exciting reasons to celebrate in January 2020 – it will be the NTA’s 25th anniversary AND our host is the brilliant David Walliams.

“David is a man of so many talents – a comedian, actor, best-selling author, TV judge and charity fundraising hero… and we look forward to him now being the NTA’s Celebrator-in-Chief in this very special year.”

Voting on the longlist starts later this month.
