Popular British talk show host Graham Norton will emcee the 2020 BAFTA Awards ceremony. He will take up the hosting duties from Joanna Lumley, who served as the presenter for the previous two years.

"I'm delighted to be taking the helm of the biggest night in British Film, the audience at the Royal Albert Hall will be the biggest sofa I've ever faced. I'm honoured to be following in the fabulous footsteps of Stephen Fry and Joanna Lumley," he said in a statement.

Amanda Berry, chief executive of BAFTA, said she looks forward to seeing Norton bring "his brilliance and unique brand of humour" during the ceremony. "With Graham as our host, I have no doubt we will deliver a very special celebration of the very best in film, and pay tribute to the most talented and creative people both in front of and behind the camera," she added.

The BAFTA nominations will be announced on January 7. The award ceremony will be held on February 2.
