Jack Whitehall hosts The Royal Variety Performance

We are delighted to announce that Jack Whitehall will be treading the boards at the Royal Albert Hall this month as he hosts The Royal Variety Performance for the first time. Making his third appearance at the prestigious variety spectacular, Jack will be the youngest host in the history of the show. He said:

“Having been lucky enough to perform for Prince Charles and Prince William in previous years I look forward to the opportunity of sailing a little too close to the wind in the presence of Prince Harry this time round,” said Whitehall. It’s my third time on the show and I still am yet to perform in front of The Queen, she must be really desperate not to see my act.”
