The couple’s podcast is in the running for the Best Comedy Podcast prize, up against shows including Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster and Parenting Hell – hosted by Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe. Meanwhile, the Chris and Rosie Ramsey Show could take home the Best Comedy Entertainment Show award. Their fellow nominees are Taskmaster, The Graham Norton Show and Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing.
Comedian Chris took to Twitter on Wednesday, January 25 to thank fans for their support in getting them to the shortlist, calling for their votes again.
He said: “We’ve been shortlisted for two National Comedy awards! Thanks so much to everyone who voted to get us on the shortlist. Now you know what that means … time to vote again. (Sorry, and thank you in advance). Please vote for us. It only takes 2 minutes.”
