‘I won’t be funny because I’m not fat anymore’: Rebel Wilson has confirmed she will host the 2022 BAFTAs while mocking her 5.5-stone weight loss, and even poked fun at Prince Andrew

She wrote: ‘Very honored to be hosting the EE British Academy Film Awards in March where Covid will no longer exist because it will clearly have been canceled by then. It is going to be very fun!

“I don’t want to put pressure on this, I know I’m not going to be funny because I’m not fat anymore.”

“And also, I’m not going to ‘sweat’ with my nerves because I have a peculiar medical condition where I can’t sweat…or offend people because of my adorable Aussie accent.”

Rebel’s Prince Andrew’s mockery comes after he claimed in a 2019 BBC interview that he never broke a sweat on the dance floor with sexual accuser Virginia Giuffre in 2001 at a London club because he has a condition that prevents him from perspiring. .

Rebel continued, “So basically I’ll be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we’ll try to bond with Daniel Craig.” And yes, I do mean ‘link’.

Amanda Berry OBE, CEO of Bafta, said: “We are delighted to welcome Rebel Wilson as host of this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards.

“Rebel has stolen the show at several previous film awards, and we are so excited to see her bring her fantastic charisma and humor to the entire show as we celebrate the best in cinema.

“We would also like to thank Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary who did a truly wonderful job organizing last year’s ceremony under exceptionally challenging circumstances and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Rebel recently made headlines for her dramatic weight loss, and earlier this week she revealed the very simple way she lost 5.5 stone (35kg) during her ‘Year of Health’ in 2020.

In an interview for Apple Fitness+, the actress admitted that walking, rather than doing endless high-intensity exercises, has actually been her secret weapon to lose weight.

Rebel said a doctor at a health retreat had advised her to start walking, insisting it was the “best way” to shed pounds.

Oh!  Teasing Prince Andrew, Rebel said that he has a medical condition, which means he won't break a sweat with nerves.

“The doctor told me, ‘Rebel, the best way to lose unwanted body fat is to just walk,'” he explained.

‘It doesn’t have to be high intensity, it doesn’t have to be uphill, just moderate walking an hour a day. And if you can do that, for you, for your body type, it’s like the best way to lose unwanted body fat.

Rebel made headlines around the world after declaring 2020 her “Year of Health”, and has since lost around 35kg.

The 75th EE British Academy Film Awards will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sunday 13 March.
