Recently, the UK Housing Awards website said its annual event at the plush Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London on 1 May would be hosted by comedian Romesh Ranganathan.

SHAC chair, Niall Mulholland, wrote to him asking him to pull out, and explaining why SHAC would be picketing outside - to name and shame housing associations for poor performance as landlords and employers.

Now the UKHA website no longer shows Romesh hosting but says, "Hosted by a surprise guest celebrity". Result!
