Alan Carr to present 2017 NatWest British LGBT Awards

Alan Carr and Melanie Sykes will co-present the 2017 NatWest British LGBT Awards.

The pair will take the reins at the star-studded awards ceremony, which celebrate individuals and organisations working to advance the rights of LGBT communities, at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London's Covent Garden on May 12.

Speaking about the ceremony, Alan said: "It's always such a fantastic night - I feel like I've just got over the last one. Plus to have my mate and Radio 2 co-host and partner in crime Melanie Sykes on hand to share the presenting duties just makes the night even more special!

"It is a fantastic event that does so much to celebrate people in the LGBT community who are making a real difference, as well highlighting the straight allies who give their much-needed support. And in 2017 these awards are more important than ever. I am so proud to be part of it.

"It is going to be a brilliant night and I am looking forward to reuniting with my Mel on stage to present the winners. It's going to be glitzy and fabulous affair with some very special moments."
