    Jason Manford returns to host the Olivier Awards for the third time!

    After hosting the Laurence Olivier Awards in 2017 and 2019, it has now been announced that Jason Manford will be returning to give Master of Ceremonies another go. The comic and stage star is currently starring in the UK tour of Kander and Ebb's whodunnit Curtains, which recently wrapped up its very brief West End run at Wyndham's Theatre in London last week on 11 January 2020.

    On reprising his role as Olivier Awards host, Jason Manford said: "It's great to be back hosting the Olivier Awards. Having trod the boards myself many times, I've experienced first-hand the huge wealth of creativity and talent across the UK theatre industry. I look forward to celebrating all the incredible work produced over the last year. It will definitely be a night to remember – see you at the Royal Albert Hall!"
