The 28-year-old, son of Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp and singer Shirlie Holliman, recently won praise for a BBC Three documentary called Our Silent Emergency examining the issue of young men’s mental health.

Other nominees this year include Ant and Dec, Bradley Walsh, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid, Zoe Ball and Kate Garraway, while shows such as Bridgerton, Call The Midwife and The Great British Bake Off also receive nods.

The awards will be presented in front of a live audience of 350 guests and the show will be free to watch online at ScreenHits.TV and via a Tric stream.

Tric chairwoman Jane Ostler said: “We can’t wait to come together and celebrate the very best of British TV, radio and online as we pay tribute to the actors, presenters and comedians who kept us happy and hooked throughout the dark days of lockdown.

“Having Roman as our MC is the icing on the cake – the atmosphere in the room is going to be utterly electric.”
