Journalist Kate Adie will be awarded this year’s Bafta Fellowship, following in the footsteps of Sir David Attenborough, Joanna Lumley and Sir Bruce Forsyth.

The fellowship is the highest accolade bestowed by Bafta on an individual for their work in film, TV or games across their career.

Bafta chairwoman Jane Lush said the broadcast journalist, who reported from danger zones and conflicts around the globe, was a “true trailblazer”.

“Kate Adie is a truly groundbreaking news journalist, being one of a very small number of women working to report the news from hostile environments around the world,” she said.
