Great news, fans of the Jameson Empire Awards and David Walliams – because that Channel-swimming goon is hosting this year!

The Little Britain and Britain’s Got Talent star is making his Empire Awards hosting debut on 20 March in front of an audience of movie big wigs.

“It's a huge thrill to be hosting the Jameson Empire Awards. I have read the magazine for as long as I can remember and am super excited to find out which Hollywood stars are attending this year,” David said.

Empire’s editor-in-chief, Terri White, added: “I have long been a massive fan of David’s work - even if my ribs don’t always thank me for it – so I’m absolutely over the moon that he’s agreed to host this year’s Jameson Empire Awards. With such a brilliant host and more gongs up for grabs than ever before, it's sure to be a night to remember."

The final nominations for the Jameson Empire Awards will be announced 18 February.
