BAFTA Television Awards with P&O Cruises | Preview (BBC One)

Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan will return to host the BAFTA Television Awards with P&O Cruises on Sunday 12 May, celebrating must-watch TV broadcast in 2023.

Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan hosted last year’s BAFTAs for the first time, helping deliver an audience peak of 4.4 million nationally on BBC One – the show’s highest ratings since 2021, whilst clips of the night received just under 12 million views on social media.

 The BAFTA Television Awards are Britain’s biggest annual celebration of TV, celebrating the shows and creative talent that captured the hearts and minds of BAFTA’s television voting membership in 2023. The star-studded ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One and iPlayer on Sunday 12 May.


Rob Beckett, said: “Romesh and I are absolutely buzzing to be back hosting the BAFTAs. We’ve not seen or spoken to each other since last year when we hosted so it will be good to catch up. It’s a real privilege to continually get work together even though our friendship is fake and completely fabricated for commercial gain. My teeth aren’t even that big I wear false ones so I can joke about them. On top of that Romesh isn’t even Asian he just pretends to be so he can do his mum’s accent”.


Romesh Ranganathan, said: “I really thought I’d done enough last year to be asked to host it solo this time, but hosting it with Rob again is also an honour I suppose”.

 Emma Baehr, Executive Director of Awards & Content at BAFTA, said: “Rob and Romesh were utterly brilliant hosts of the BAFTA Television Awards with P&O Cruises last year, cementing their reputation as one of the nation’s most treasured comedy duos, so we couldn’t be happier that they are returning to host Britain’s biggest celebration of TV on 12 May...

"The innovation, breadth and quality of British-made TV is one of our country’s biggest superpowers – inspiring, entertaining and informing like no other medium. We are really looking forward to celebrating the many talented people who bring TV to life on-and-off screen, and the must-watch shows broadcast in 2023, with the nominations for the BAFTA Television Awards and BAFTA Television Craft Awards out this Wednesday.”

 P&O Cruises is once again the headline sponsor for the BAFTA Television Awards.
