Your headliner for the evening is recent star of ITV’s Dancing on Ice, Matt Richardson. Matt is a multi-award winning stand-up comedian and one of the most exciting names on the circuit.

Matt has hosted the Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack & The Hangover Games (E4), as well appearing on Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Pointless Celebrities, Big Brothers Bit on the Side, Roast Battle, I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of here Now! and countless other shows.
