This years’ ceremony will be hosted by comedian and actor, Justin Moorhouse - as seen on Live At The Apollo, Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and Coronation Street.

It’s been a busy 18 months for Justin, he brought back tiger-faced Young Kenny for the record-breaking run of Phoenix Nights Live at The Manchester Arena, which raised over £5 million for comic relief; told fantastic tales about Australia and Manchester on Live At The Apollo; won The Champion of Champions on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk; and appeared as Dean the rival cricketing landlord on Coronation Street.

All this as well as helming his own critically acclaimed podcast About 30 Minutes, No More Than 45. He also released his first DVD Christmas 2015 – Live in Salford.

In 2016 Justin performed his new show, People And Feelings, at the Edinburgh Festival.



After the awards ceremony, we will be kicking off the celebrations with our Rockaoke band ‘The One Step’, where you can sing a song of your choice backed by a live band! Further details and song lists will be available on the night.
