Jason Manford is back to host the event for a second year.

“I’m absolutely chuffed to bits to be back hosting the Olivier Awards at the Royal Albert Hall,” he said. “Having worked in theatres all across the country doing both stand-up and musicals for the last 20 years, I know the hard work that goes into putting on a show.

“It’s a privilege to host this star-studded evening and to celebrate the very best of all areas of British theatrical talent.”
