Our 2022 event was hosted by Television Presenter and Journalist,  Andrea Byrne

This year's industry awards programme was hosted by Andrea Byrne, well known for presenting ITV Cymru Wales' 'Wales at Six' and regular face on the ITV news. Her most memorable interviewee is Prince Harry, who spoke to her about his charity work in an exclusive interview at Clarence House.


Building on the success of past performances, this year's event saw mindreading double-act DNA hit the stage. They took the world by storm when they appeared on Britain’s Got Talent Series 11 with their incredible telepathic ability. Wowing the judges, live audience and viewers at home, the duo have gone on to perform to tens of millions of people around the world and still no one is able to guess how they do it.
