Jeremy Nicholas to host the Good Funeral Awards 2014
26 June, 2014
Jeremy Nicholas will host the Good Funeral Awards 2014.
The award winning TV and radio broadcaster, known for his quirky ‘And Finally’ reports for BBC News, agreed to take on one of Britain’s more unusual awards ceremonies.
Jeremy’s is a well-known voice on the after-dinner circuit and was the 42nd person in the UK to be awarded a Fellowship of the Professional Speaking Association.
TV sports fans will recognise him as the early face of live football on Channel 5, back in the days when the picture was a bit fuzzy. When the signal improved he was replaced by someone better looking.
Jeremy’s career highlights include losing out to Anthea Turner in the hunt for a new Blue Peter presenter and being ambushed live on air by an armed man claiming to be Jesus.
Organiser, Brian Jenner, said, “I’ve known Jeremy for a while. He recommended Pam St Clement to me last year, who proved to be a big hit.”
