“I had an absolute blast hosting last year’s awards and I am genuinely thrilled to be invited back,” Perkins said. “It’s a real pleasure to be the master of ceremonies once more, as we celebrate the very best in British television.”
The former Bake Off presenter took over from long-running Bafta host Graham Norton in 2017 and was a hit with audiences, dropping some barbed jokes about the baking contest’s move from BBC to Channel 4, which had led to her departure alongside judge Mary Berry and co-presenter Mel Giedroyc.
Perkins can next be seen in the BBC’s reboot of The Generation Game alongside partner in crime Giedroyc, which debuts on Easter Sunday.
