Miss Piggy to host Oranges BAFTA Red Carpet Show

Muppet fans are rejoicing – while A-list actors everywhere are starting to fret – as Orange announced that Miss Piggy will host their BAFTA Red Carpet Show.

The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday 12 February at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden, and the Orange BAFTA Red Carpet Show With Miss Piggy will be available on orange.co.uk/bafta on Monday 13 February.

Speaking about her appointment, Miss Piggy said: “Imagine the likes of Clooney, Dujardin, Fassbender, Oldman and Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers by getting a chance to speak with the one and only moi—Miss Piggy! Naturally, I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask.

“So live your dreams vicariously through me and tune in Monday 13th February to see lots of MOI on the red carpet with my fellow A-List actors. I can hardly wait…and neither can they!”

The Muppets finally opens in the UK on 10 February 2012.
