Ant & Dec have been confirmed as the hosts of next year’s BRIT Awards.
The duo will return to the BRITs stage for the first time in 14 years having hosted the ceremony back in 2001. Ant & Dec have become the most successful presenting team on TV forming after appearing on Byker Grove and going on to present a wide variety of hit shows including Saturday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.
Ant & Dec said: “We’re really excited to be hosting the BRITs again next year, it is undoubtedly the biggest night in the British music calendar. We’re especially excited now we’re No.1 recording artists ourselves. We’ll be offering our advice to the fledgling pop stars backstage as to how to have a No.1 hit, as long as they’re prepared to wait 19 years for their records to top the chart like ours did!”
BRITs Chairman Max Lousada said: “Ant & Dec are two of the most popular TV broadcasters this country has ever produced and it’s a real honour to have them take centre stage once again to host the BRITs. It’s great that these two pillars of British TV will be part of a night about celebrating icons in British music.”
It was recently revealed that artist Tracey Emin would be the designer of the ceremony’s award.
The BRITs will take place Wednesday 25th February at The O2 and will be broadcast live on ITV.
