Fresh from hosting ITV’s coverage of the Rugby World Cup in England and Wales, Durden-Smith will swap talking about trys for presenting the food manufacturing Oscars at the Lancaster Hotel in London on November 3.
Having presented the awards so well last year, Durden-Smith was the first person ever to be asked to present the awards for a second time.
In this photogallery we look at some of Durden-Smith’s traits that earned him a recall and give you a flavour of what to expect on the big night.
The carnival-themed FMEAs take place on November 3 at the Lancaster Hotel in London and will recognise the very best in UK food and drink manufacturing.
Trophies will be handed out to the winners in nine category awards – including ambient, dairy and bakery – as well as five industry initiative awards.
An overall Food Manufacture Company of the Year will be awarded from one of these winners.
We will also crown a Personality of the Year from our shortlist of: Quorn ceo Kein Brennan, Genius founder Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne, Bernard Matthews technical director Jeremy Hall, Groceries Code Adjudicator Christine Tacon, Tulip ceo Chris Thomas and Greggs boss Roger Whiteside.
