Matt Lucas, star of Little Britain and Come Fly With Me, brings his hit Radio 2 comedy award show format (And The Winner Is...) to television.

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."

Guests across the series include Jason Manford, Graeme Garden, Ruth Jones, Louis Walsh, Johnny Vegas, David Baddiel, Griff Rhys Jones, Richard Madeley and Maureen Lipman.
