The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has today announced that British comedian, actor and writer Alan Davies will host this year’s British Academy Television Craft Awards. Taking place at The Brewery, in the City of London, on Sunday 13 May, the Awards honour the very best behind-the-scenes talent from television and new media from the past year.

Speaking about hosting this year’s British Academy Television Craft Awards, Alan said: "I'm looking forward to meeting the people who actually do all the work in TV and to seeing people accept awards without collapsing in tears."

Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said: “Alan is one of those brilliant British talents that have done it all. Given that the Television Craft Awards recognise those that create television, the combination of his acting and stand-up experience, along with his proven track record in writing, makes him the perfect host for this year’s event.”
