Graham Norton will host the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards.

BAFTA have announced the 55-year-old comedian will present the ceremony, which will take place on Sunday May 12th at Royal Festival Hall in central London, and the star can't wait to see some top TV talent "rewarded" on the night.

Graham said: "It has been almost 15 years since I first hosted the Television Awards and what a pleasure it is to be returning to host once again.

"2018 was a stand-out year for television and I look forward to seeing the brilliant talent in our industry rewarded."

Clare Brown, director of production at BAFTA, added: "We are delighted to be welcoming Graham back to host the British Academy Television Awards.

Kate Phillips, controller of BBC Entertainment, said: "What an incredible year of TV it's been and we're so pleased Graham's back to host this year's awards which will bring together a stellar line-up of talent from on and off screen, to celebrate the best of British creativity.

"I'd also like to take this moment to say a very special thanks to the brilliant Sue Perkins who brought such warmth, wit and wisdom to the BAFTAs as host the past two years, while Graham was away hosting Eurovision."

Graham's popular chat show, the aptly-named "The Graham Norton Show", has won him six BAFTA TV Awards.
