A MALTON presenter has been nominated for two national entertainment awards.

Ryan Swain will represent the North of England at the National Choice Award and Public Recognition Award at a ceremony in London in December. The event is designed to showcase the talent across the UK, along with recognising and rewarding acts within their particular fields in music, dance, performance and variety.

Ryan said: “I am totally overwhelmed to be recognised and up for a national award. I would like to thank all of my family, friends and fans for their support, words can’t describe how much it means and I am truly grateful.

“It would be amazing to bring back this award to Yorkshire and put my hometown on the map for not just food but also entertainment.”
