We are proud to announce that Rob Beckett will host the National Fish and Chip Awards 2024.
Rob Beckett burst onto the comedy circuit 15 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. As well as appearing in ITV’s Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown, Rob can also be seen alongside fellow comedian and best mate Romesh Ranganathan in Rob And Romesh Vs and as the unmistakable voice of Celebs Go Dating. In 2019 Rob co-host The Royal Variety Performance with Romesh, the first time two comedians had hosted the event together in over 30 years. 2023 has also seen Rob and Romesh host The BAFTA TV Awards.
His cheeky persona has also seen him host Children in Need and Comic Relief. Other TV shows include multiple appearances on BBC One’s Live At The Apollo, Would I Lie To You?, The Graham Norton Show, All Round Mrs Brown’s, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, Sky One’s A League of Their Own, Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and Cats Does Countdown, BBC Two’s Mock The Week, ITV’s Play to The Whistle, The Jonathan Ross Show, ITV Two’s Celebrity Juice, and Dave’s Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, Taskmaster, and Hypothetical.
“Lights up the stage with his magnetic personality (not to mention the dazzle from his teeth)” – MAIL ON SUNDAY
Rob can also be heard alongside Josh Widdicombe hosting their highly successful podcast Parenting Hell through which they interview fellow parents on their successes (or most likely failures) at parenting. Guests have included Katherine Ryan, Jonathan Ross, Kerry Godliman and many more. 2023 even saw the podcast hit the road on the Parenting Hell Live arena tour, playing to sold out arenas up and down the nation.
And as if his performance talent isn’t enough, Rob has now penned a book – A Class Act – which is his autobiographical account of being working class in the middle-class world of television and comedy. At work he’s the Cockney geezer, but to his mates down the pub in south-east London, he’s the theatrical one – a media luvvy. Even his wife and kids are posher than him! The book, which is a funny, candid and often moving account of what it feels like to be an outsider quickly became a Sunday Times Bestseller.
All in all, we are confident that he will make a fantastic host of the National Fish and Chip Awards.
