New BAFTA host

Joanna Lumley has been announced as the new BAFTA host.

Stephen Fry stepped down as host this year after being in the position for 12 years.

He explained: ‘I felt it only right to stand down and let others take the BAFTAs on to new heights and greater glories.

‘What fun it will be to watch BAFTA 2018 without my heart hammering, mouth drying and knees trembling.’

Lumley spoke about ‘how exciting’ the news is.

She said: ‘It’s just so unbelievably thrilling. Who thought I’d turn into Stephen Fry?

‘I want to thank Bafta so much for asking me to do this. I said yes indecently quickly.’
