Katherine Ryan admitted she was eager to roast again and revealed an award show stage was the only place she felt it was truly acceptable to go for it as a comedian.

The Canadian star, 39, explained she ‘would die’ to present any of the major ceremonies and divulged her fandom for fellow funnyman and infamous host Ricky Gervais. 

She shared details about her process as a comic and admitted there weren’t many places where she felt truly comfortable opening fire on the audience when it came to writing her roasting material. 

The mum-of-three exclusively admitted to Metro.co.uk: ‘I would die to present the Baftas or the Oscars or the Emmys or the Mobo awards or the Brits – anything like that. 

‘I feel like it’s almost the last place where a comedian can roast and that’s because the status in the room is so high that someone like Ricky Jervey does an incredible job of  letting those people show their vulnerability and have a laugh at themselves.

‘I love that kind of comedy. I would love to do that’.

Katherine went on to pinpoint which evening, in particular, she would put at the top of her hosting goals list

‘I think I would love to do the Baftas,’ she said. 

‘I don’t know that I’m a Bafta darling necessarily. I don’t know that I would be asked.

‘I might not be posh enough and also I’m not even British, so they might not ask me but it would be a dream to host the Baftas because I’m such a fan of, not just British culture but international pop culture. 

‘I know so much. I have forensic knowledge of British and international celebrities and I feel like I know the British sense of humour enough to toe the line without getting completely banned, too hot for tv’.

The star revealed who would be on her target list should she be asked to take the helm of a prestigious ceremony.

She highlighted: ‘Well, it definitely always depends on who’s up for an award in that instance. 

‘So you would have to talk about the stars of the films… Brendan Fraser, you’d have to talk about his journey. William and Kate are in the audience so you’d have to talk about them.

‘Maya Jama is someone I love and someone everyone knows about, so a roast doesn’t always have to have nasty things in it. You can love someone and still bring them up in a roast.  

‘Probably Phil and Holly, maybe Meghan and Harry. Taylor Swift is evergreen, always famous. 

‘Honestly, I don’t know what’s that cool right now but Elon Musk, Kanye West, Paris Hilton’s just had a baby. Definitely the Kardashians… there’s so much fun to be had’.

While Katherine will be watching the shows this season from her sofa, she sorted out a way to keep herself entertained and surprised from the comfort of her home with her new Gousto collaboration. 

She teamed up with the meal subscription box brand to work on their latest Flavour that Pops campaign and launched a limited-edition popcorn line that featured controversial combos such as Sunday roast, katsu curry and Hawaiian pizza. 

Ahead of the Oscars, Katherine Ryan is supporting Gousto’s Flavour That Pops campaign. Visit their website to grab your own FREE box – perfect for film-loving-foodies!
