2019 host and comedian to be confirmed shortly
2018 host and comedian:
Back by popular demand...... The 2018 presenter is Steph McGovern.
For over a decade Steph McGovern has reported on business and finance from around the world; from international summits to small business success stories. She is an established part of the BBC Breakfast team, covering business developments daily, and also regularly taking to the sofa as main co-host.
During the financial crash Steph was the lead producer of financial news, working with then Business Editor Robert Peston at the forefront of the award-winning coverage of the credit crunch and banking crisis. She soon began broadcasting herself, and Steph has presented on 5Live, Radio 4 and on the Chris Evans show on Radio 2.
Steph's Breakfast duties include meeting first-hand those on Britain’s business frontline. Speaking to factory workers and FTSE 100 CEOs, Steph’s mission is to uncover and explain what’s going on in the real economy.
The 2018 comedian is Lee Nelson.
Known as Britain's best hoaxer, Nelson has hit the headlines for a series of controversial live stunts over the years, from handing Theresa May her P45 at the Tory conference in October, to showering Sepp Blatter with banknotes at the Fifa press conference in 2015. He has headlined Glastonbury with Kanye West by storming the stage and placed a banner on Philip Green’s luxury yacht, renaming it the BHS Destroyer.
As well as keeping the nation entertained with his pranks, Nelson has taken five hit shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, had 3 successful TV shows of his own and hosted Live at the Apollo.
Once the awards have finished and Lee Nelson has finished his set the cash bars will open.
