Dress to impress

Host – Iain Stirling

BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling is best known as the unmistakable voice of the hit reality show Love Island (ITV2), which recently finished its fourth series. Following his success on Love Island, he took on the role of host for ITV2’s new physical comedy entertainment show, CelebAbility, adding to an extensive list of television credits, including Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central) plus an array of panel shows, such as Virtually Famous (E4) and Fake Reaction (ITV2).

A driving force behind the concept of comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Iain has co-written and hosted four series which saw him win 2017’s Children’s BAFTA Best Presenter Award (2017) and, following three nominations, scoop 2016’s BAFTA Scotland’s Best Programme Award.

Making a name for himself internationally, Iain has performed at both the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival. He is also a firm favourite at the renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe with five sold-out critically-acclaimed shows to his name. This year, he returns for three nights only with Iain (Stirling) Does Jokes (With Pals).

Iain shares his hilarious life lessons and ill-informed guide to what life is really like for millennials in his debut book Not Ready to Adult Yet which is to be released later this month.

Entertainment – Max George

As part of boyband The Wanted, Max George travelled the world, hit the top of the charts, and experienced a kind of Wantedmania as the band’s fame peaked.

Now, four years outside the bubble, the 30-year-old singer is going down a storm as a solo artist – selling out venues across the UK and Europe.

We are delighted that heart-throb Max, whose debut solo single Barcelona was the smash hit of the summer,will be playing Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium on November 30.

He said: “I was so honoured to be asked to play at the Young Scot Awards. I couldn’t
wait to phone my dad and tell him as he knows how much I used to love playing Glasgow.

“My first Scots appearance with The Wanted was at the Clyde Auditorium so it’s
nice to be making my Scottish solo debut there too. It’s like I’ve come full circle.

“Glasgow has to be one of the greatest audiences in the world. It’s definitely the
loudest audience and the most passionate and I can’t wait to see how they receive me.”

Max, added: “I think it is massively important for young people to be recognised for the
incredible things they are doing.

“They are not only the next generation, they are our future that’s why awards
like these are so important and I feel privileged to be able to play my part in them.”
