Now listen, we all know that first impressions count, and that’s never more true than when you’re starting a brand new job.

So we can see why – as he gears up for his first ever year hosting the National Television AwardsJoel Dommett made sure that his entrance was a memorable one.

Ahead of this year’s NTAs, the comedian and host of The Masked Singer was the first star to walk the red carpet on Thursday night.

Or maybe we should say he “scooted down” the red carpet.

Yes, as he made his way into the event – where he’ll take over as NTAs host from his divisive predecessor David Walliams – Joel glided past photographers outside London’s O2 Arena on a scooter.

He was snapped wearing a smart suit with some more scooter-friendly footwear and a bright green helmet (safety first, folks).

Initially best known as a stand-up comedian and the star of Impractical Jokers UK, Joel became known to a whole new audience when he appeared on I’m A Celebrity back in 2016, eventually finishing in second place.

These days, he’s best known for hosting the past two series of The Masked Singer, as well as the 2021 spin-off The Masked Dancer.
