The M&IT Awards 2021 will be hosted by Gethin Jones!
Gethin Jones’ television career started on his 24th birthday, on the S4C show Popty with Alex Jones. Almost two decades on, Gethin regularly appears with Alex on the famous The One Show sofa, and currently fronts BBC1’s topical daily show Morning Live. He’s been busy in between; flying with the Red Arrows, completing the infamous Royal Marine 30 mile yomp, braving the Bolivian jungle and surviving an alligator attack – that was just the day job with Blue Peter.
Gethin loves a challenge, most recently in the MasterChef kitchen, but in 2007 he took himself completely out of his comfort zone, and onto the Strictly Come Dancing dance floor! He’s been involved with the show ever since with It Takes Two, including hosting the American version, Dancing With the Stars All Access for ABC in Los Angeles.
His versatility as a broadcaster has enabled him to host a variety of different TV and radio shows, including;
Sell Me the Answer (BBC), Gethin Jones’ Danger Hunters (Virgin), Proms in the Park (BBC), Police Camera Action, Holding Out For a Hero, 71 Degrees North, The 21st Question (all ITV), Fear: Buried Alive (A&E network USA), NFL live (NFL Facebook USA), Scrum V (BBC Wales), National Lottery Live and Remembrance Week (BBC). BBC Radio 2, 5Live weekends, Heart FM Breakfast and Radio Wales.
We’re thrilled to have Gethin Jones as MC for the third time! Alongside having an energetic MC, the evening includes a delicious three-course dinner, live entertainment, raffle and we’ll announce who’s taking home gold, silver, and bronze. It will be a night of celebration and a great chance to network with your industry peers once again.
