Dermot O’Leary has made the “tough decision” to quit as host of the National Television Awards after ten years.
The broadcaster and TV personality said a decade felt “about right,” after fronting every NTAs ceremony since 2010 alongside his other commitments including ITV’s The X Factor and his Saturday morning breakfast show on BBC Radio 2.
“After 10 years of proudly hosting the National Television Awards, I have decided it’s time to step down as host,” he wrote in a statement shared online. “It’s been a tough decision because we have had a ball over the last decade, but 10 years feels about right.”
