Stephen Mulhern to host The National Lottery results on ITV


Stephen Mulhern has gone and landed himself a brand new TV gig.

The star of stage and screen™ has been revealed as the new host of The National Lottery results on ITV

The televised draws had been axed by BBC One in 2016, moving to iPlayer from last year.

However now they’re back, but this time on ITV.

The Lotto results will return to Saturday nights, airing in the ad breaks of Britain’s Got Talent which starts at 8PM this weekend, April 14.

Stephen, who also fronts BGT’s More Talent spin-off show on ITV2, said: “The National Lottery is an iconic institution and I’m hugely excited to be part of its return to primetime Saturday night TV.

“When you think about The National Lottery, you think of people winning life-changing prizes but sometimes forget that players raise around £30 million every week for Good Causes across the UK.

“I feel privileged to be bringing those lucky numbers to the nation, but also being able to show players how the money they’ve helped raise has made a difference to communities across the UK.”

Camelot’s head of brand marketing Hayley Stringfellow added: “We’re hugely excited by this innovative commercial partnership.

“One of the outcomes of our recent strategic review was to make The National Lottery and its purpose far more relevant and visible – so what better way to do this than by partnering with ITV to deliver the results during some of the most popular primetime shows?”

Simon Daglish, deputy managing director at ITV commercial, said: “The National Lottery has been a big part of Saturday nights since 1994 and we’re delighted to be bringing the Lotto results to viewers during ITV’s flagship Saturday night entertainment shows.

“This new partnership is a natural fit to make our biggest audiences aware of the National Lottery’s work.”
