Our congratulations go to Billy Connolly who has been announced as this year’s Special Recognition Award recipient by the National Television Awards!
Given that Connolly is one of the most legendary and loved comedian on this planet, it comes as no surprise, and news of this accolade comes the day after he kicks off his High Horse Tour residency at the Eventim Apollo in London.
Celebrating The Big Yin’s 50 years in comedy, Connolly will be presented the award by actor Dustin Hoffman at the 21st edition of the coveted awards ceremony on Wednesday 20th January. The ceremony will be broadcast on ITV from 7.30pm.
