Rob Brydon to host British Takeaway Awards
Rob Brydon is set to host the forthcoming British Takeaway Awards.
The former 'Gavin & Stacey' star will front the annual event, held at The Savoy Hotel in London, on December 5 as Ainsley Harriott and Sarah Willingham pick their winners.
Ainsley said: "We are spoiled for choice in the UK with so many superb restaurants serving top quality dishes, made of fresh ingredients and delivered straight to your door."
On Wednesday (16.11.16), following 110,000 public votes, 65 of Britain's best takeaways including Italian, Afghan, Indian, Japanese and traditional British Fish & Chips found out if they were voted as one of their region's high-street heroes.
Ainsley explained: "It has been a tough, but enjoyable job to whittle the British Takeaway Awards finalists down to just 65. I am looking forward to seeing the top takeaways from across the country awarded on the night."
Ainsley and Sarah - as well as other judges - had the hard task of whittling the nominees down to just 13 regional winners and the overall victor to collect their prize next month.
A total of 16 awards will be presented at the ceremony and each of the 13 regional winners will receive £1,000 and free sign up to Just Eat, who are sponsoring the event, while one of the finalists will win the coveted award for Best British Takeaway in Britain and receive a cheque for £5,000 to support their business.
The British Takeaway Awards, which were established last year, celebrates the diverse world of takeaway food nationwide, while also championing the creative chefs and passionate employees that make up the UK takeaway industry.
