Richard Hammond wins award as best presenter at Children's BAFTAs

30th November 2009

Much loved Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond won an award at the Children's Bafta last night, confirming him as a favourite with kids too.

Richard Hammond joined Bafta hosts, the children's television presenters Dick and Dom, to collect his award for Best Presenter for Richard Hammond's Blast Lab on CBBC.

More than 400,000 children voted in the EA British Academy Children's Awards to name their top picks in kids' entertainment this year.  They got to choose their favourite Feature Film, Television programme, Video Game and Website.

The clear favourite for Film and Television was Hannah Montana, Wii Sports Resort was the winning video game and voted as the top website was Club Penguin.

Collecting the Special Award for outstanding creative contribution to the industry was Bernard Cribbins, whose CV also includes Jackanory, The Wombles and The Wind in the Willows.  He collected his award from his Doctor Who co-star, Catherine Tate.

S4C's Rhestr Nadolig Wil (Wil's Christmas List) picked up a drama award and Coraline picked up the Feature Film award.

Amanda Berry, Chief Executive of Bafta said: "This year's EA British Academy Children's Awards has proved that the quality of children's entertainment remains incredibly high.

"We are thrilled to recognise such a wide range of children's programming, and it is wonderful that in one ceremony we can recognise the breakthrough talent of Adam Shaw at Blue Zoo, representing the very best of British animation, and at the same time honour Bernard Cribbins, whose legendary career spans six decades, from Jackanory and The Railway Children to Doctor Who, and continues to enthral children to this day."
