Zoë Ball has been announced as the host for the Tesco Mum of the Year Awards’ glitzy ceremony, which will take place at London’s iconic hotel, The Savoy, on Sunday 1st March. Marking its 10th anniversary year, the Awards celebrate ordinary mums who do extraordinary things for others.
The TV and Radio presenter – seen most recently on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour – will join a stellar line up of celebs at the awards, including celebrity judges radio DJ Sara Cox, sports presenter Denise Lewis, Tesco Mum of the Year Ambassador Fearne Cotton and Celebrity Tesco Mum of the Year 2015 winner, Dame Esther Rantzen.
The mum of two will be helping to give recognition and celebrate the achievements of eight winning mums, all of whom have been recognised for their individual efforts in helping others, whether that is through their charity work, campaigning efforts, inspiring achievements or supporting others.
Zoë said, “I am really excited to be part of these awards – especially joining in the 10thAnniversary year and helping to celebrate these inspirational mums. Being a Mum is the best job I’ve ever had, our kids are everything to us. I know how much love, strength and patience it takes to be the best Mum you can be. I’m super chuffed & quite honoured to be part of the celebrations of some truly extraordinary mums who have given so much time and love to so many and have inspired us all”
Zoë’s presenting career first started on The Big Breakfast and Saturday morning children’s programme Live & Kicking, but she is best known for her co-host slot on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show. She has since gone on to present on BBC Radio 2, The Voice UK’s spin off show The Voice: Louder on Two and Strictly Come Dancing’s sister show It takes Two. Zoë has also co- hosted BBC One Children in Need.
Since the awards started 10 years ago, Tesco has supported the causes of over 80 mums who have shared their personal stories of achievement, selflessness and courage.
Debbie Chernin, Tesco Mum of the Year Manager, said: “We’re thrilled to have Zoë hosting this year’s Tesco Mum of the Year Awards. She’s a fantastic presenter and will certainly add to the event’s entertainment!”
