Gyles Brandreth to host FLTA Awards 2016
15 January 2016
Master raconteur and accomplished after-dinner speaker Gyles Brandreth has been announced as the new host for the FLTA Awards for Excellence at The International Centre on 27th February 2016.
Outgoing host Martin Bayfield was sadly called away due to 6 Nations commitments, and in a sensational stroke of luck the Association has secured Mr Brandreth, one of the most sought-after award hosts in the country.
Gyles Brandreth is a popular broadcaster, writer and television personality and a familiar face on the BBC’s flagship The One Show, as well as presiding over dictionary corner on Channel 4’s Countdown.
Peter Harvey, CEO of the FLTA, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have such a well-known and well-respected lead presenter on board for Awards 2016. Gyles has attracted rave reviews for his wit, warmth and wisdom, and we can’t wait to see him in action for what will be a hilarious night!”
