Mark Wahlberg To Host Kids Choice Awards
Transformers star to oversee Nickelodeon's annual awards shindig...
The Transformers: The Age Of Extinction and Ted star will be MCing the annual gong show at the USC's Galen Centre in Los Angeles on 29 March - taking over from last year's host.
"We cannot wait to see Mark Wahlberg take the reins for the first time as the host and master of slime at the biggest kid event of the year," Tina McCann of Nickelodeon UK & Ireland commented.
"As always it will be an action-packed event, where anything can happen and UK kids will soon be able to have their say and vote online for their favourite stars of TV, film, music and sport."
Nominations are set to be announced in the coming weeks and then voting will get under way.
One Direction and The Hunger Games were the big winners last year.
