Rick Edwards has been announced as the host of a red carpet after-party show for this year's BAFTA Film Awards.

The Tool Academy presenter will greet award winners and VIP guests arriving at the official after-party held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on February 10.



Edwards will interview stars on the red carpet, to be uploaded throughout the evening of the awards on the Disaronno Facebook page.

Live updates from the evening will also be posted on the Disaronno Twitter page.

Speaking about his hosting gig, Edwards said: "I'm obviously chuffed to be the official Disaronno red carpet presenter at the awards this year.

"I'll be asking questions and, hopefully, getting answers from a whole host of famous names on the red carpet. I'd love it if people watched it."

He added: ''Hugh Jackman is my all-time favourite interviewee. I know he won't remember me, but I'm still holding onto a tiny hope that he might. Hence I'm getting a 'We've Met Before, Hugh' badge made up.''

Rick Edwards has also spoken of his hopes to emulate Sir David Attenborough in making natural history programmes in the future.

The 2013 BAFTAs will take place on Sunday, February 10 at London's Royal Opera House and be broadcast on BBC One.
