David Tennant has started to feel a little 'nervous' ahead of the 2024 BAFTA Awards as he prepares to host the star-studded ceremony on Sunday.

The Doctor Who star, 52, will take over the coveted spot from last year's hosts Alison Hammond and Richard E Grant and front the British Academy Film Awards.
