Comedian Alex Horne is to host this year’s 61st annual Rose d’Or TV and audio entertainment award on November 28. The Rose d’Or has recognised British TV achievement since the 1960s – and entries will close in three days, on September 24.
Alex Horne will be following in the footsteps of Sir Lenny Henry, Nish Kumar, and Sue Perkins, who have all hosted the Rose d’Or Awards ceremony in recent years. Alex is the creator and co-host of the hit TV Show, Taskmaster, which was nominated for a Rose d’Or Award last year.
Taskmaster has also proved hugely popular in over a dozen countries around the world, including New Zealand, Portugal, Croatia and Sweden. Alex is also the creator and frontman of multi-talented six-piece comedy band, The Horne Section, whose TV series will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK this Autumn.
Alex said: “I’ve administered many tasks over the past few years, many of which end up with me getting wet or naked. It’s an absolute honour to now tackle the task of presenting the Rose d’Or Awards, which have recognised so many TV greats across the years – and if I stay dry and fully clothed at the end of the show, that’s a bonus for everyone.“
Mark Rowland, Chair of the Rose d’Or Awards said: “We are delighted that Alex, a former nominee, has agreed to host this year’s awards. We know from Taskmaster, there’s nothing he can’t handle, so the awards are in very good hands. We look forward to his lateral take on the world of television – and finding out if this year’s show ends with a fully clothed host.”
