Paddy McGuinness



Sir Trevor McDonald

The host of this year’s Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards will be the actor, comedian and TV presenter, Paddy McGuinness.

Paddy rose to fame working alongside Peter Kay on shows like That Peter Kay Thing, Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere.

Since then, he has made a name for himself as the presenter of hit shows including Take Me Out and Top Gear, and as the new host of Question of Sport. Last year, Paddy and his wife Christine made a BBC documentary, Paddy and Christine McGuinness: Our Family and Autism, after revealing that Christine and the couple’s three children are all autistic.

As our host for the evening, Paddy will introduce each of the 14 categories in the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards and present the trophies to the winners.
