Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre will be hosts of the GQ Men of the Year Awards this year, promising ‘a great party’.

The usually star-studded event will take place in person on September 1 in London, having moved online in 2020 in a ceremony hosted by Jack Whitehall.

Organisers have promised the awards will celebrate ‘those who have shaped the world’s cultural landscape in style, entertainment and sport throughout 2021’.

In a joint statement the married couple said: ‘We are excited to host this year’s GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 in London.

‘In their various ways, the GQ Men Of The Year award winners have kept all of our spirits up throughout one of the most difficult years and we are very much looking forward to celebrating with them – and hosting a great party!’

Eammon Holmes and Ruth Langsford, Rochelle and Marvin Humes – now we can add Idris and Sabrina to the married hosts club.

Last year’s winners included Marcus Rashford, Michaela Coel, Paul Mescal and Captain Sir Tom Moore.

In 2021 the awards categories will include band, designer, television actor, standout performance and outstanding contribution.

The lifetime achievement award counts Iggy Pop and Prince Charles among its previous winners, and will be back again this year.

Nick Sargent, publishing director of British GQ, said: ‘After the unprecedented year we’ve had, I’m thrilled to announce the return of the GQ Men Of The Year Awards for 2021 as a live event.

‘Even though our virtual event last year was a huge success, it’s exciting to be able to come together again in person to celebrate the incredible talent who best represent GQ and continue to push the boundaries on the world’s cultural stage.

‘It will be a night to remember.’
