The Matt Lucas Awards is the show that gives out the awards that other shows don't, whether it's Smuggest Nation of People or Most More-ish Food. The nominations are provided each week by three celebrity guests before Matt finally decides the winner of the much-coveted and exquisitely-titled 'Lucas' statue - a golden miniature naked Matt Lucas.
Unlike other award shows, The Matt Lucas Awards doesn't come from a swanky hotel but takes place in Matt's flat where he is joined in the kitchen by his Mum (yes, his real mum) and on keyboards by the renowned film composer David Arnold, and a live studio audience.
Matt says: "I'm not dressed as a woman, there's no prosthetics and no swearing, so you probably won't recognise me. Oh, and my mum's in it."
