Following James Cordon bowing out after last year’s show, TV hosts Ant & Dec have been confirmed to present next February’s BRIT Awards.

Announcing the appointment last night, the duo said: “We’re really excited to be hosting the BRITs again next year, it is undoubtedly the biggest night in the British music calendar. “, before sarcastically adding that “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!”

The BRIT Awards 2015 take place on 25th February, with performances set to be announced nearer the time.
