Sue Perkins to host the 2021 Rose d’Or Awards

Europe’s premier TV and audio entertainment awards are delighted to announce that one of the UK’s best known TV and radio stars, Sue Perkins, will host this year’s Rose d’Or Awards – the 60th anniversary ceremony.

Sue is an accomplished presenter, writer, actor, director and comedian.  She hosted The Great British Bake Off for 7 seasons for the BBC; astonished the audience of ITV’s Masked Singer as a celebrity competitor earlier this year – and she’s recently taken the coveted role as chair of BBC Radio’s iconic Just a Minute comedy series.

Sue has also presented highly regarded travel, music and wildlife programmes and has comedy writing credits that include the multi-award winning Absolutely Fabulous. Her memoir Spectacles topped the Sunday Times best seller list.

Sue said “It’s an absolute honour to be presenting the Rose d’Or Awards, which have celebrated TV greats across the genres for over 60 years – from Dame Edna Everage to Sir David Attenborough. It’s been a tough 12 months for everyone, yet despite the odds, great shows have kept on coming. I can’t wait to see which ones claim these coveted prizes on the night. “

There is just one week to go before entries close on October 1. You can find out more and enter online by CLICKING HERE.
