No more Stephen Fry

If you followed the previous ceremonies, you might be surprised not to see Stephen Fry hosting the event this year. After 12 years of duties Stephen Fry stepped down. Today it was revealed that Joanna Lumley will be taking over presenting the big award.

Speaking about the honour at the nominations announcement she said: “Honestly how exciting is this? It’s just so unbelievably thrilling.

“I always looked at the Bafta Awards with Stephen Fry there forever more, so who thought I’d turn into Stephen Fry?”
