Sally Phillips, the English comedic actress best known for roles such as Tilly in Miranda, Sophie in I’m Alan Partridge and Shazza in Bridget Jones’ Diary, has been named as the host of the 2019 CEDIA Awards in London.
The CEDIA Awards will take place on September 26 at the V&A Museum in London and will serve as a showcase of the best and brightest of the custom install industry. The event is now in its 14th year, and previous hosts have included Gadget Show presenter, Jason Bradbury; comedian, Marcus Brigstocke; and television presenter, Suzi Perry.
Sally Phillips may be best known for her comedy roles, but she is also a renowned writer and radio host. She co-created the sketch comedy show Smack the Pony which aired on Channel 4 in the early noughties, while she’s also the infamous curator of the Radio 4 comedy panel show, The Museum of Curiosity.
