Ant & Dec confirmed to host BRIT Awards 2015

Kings of primetime TV will present next year’s ceremony for the first time in 14 years.

Ant & Dec have been confirmed as the hosts of next year’s BRIT Awards.

The duo - who last presented the music event in 2001 - take over from James Cordon, who hosted the awards for the last four years.

The pair said in a statement: "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 Number 1 recording artists ourselves. We'll be offering our advice to the fledgling pop stars backstage as to how to have a Number 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 added: “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.”

Ant & Dec, who also present Britain’s Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway, will host the Brit Awards live from London’s O2 Arena on February 25, 2015.

This year’s awards statue will be designed by Tracy Emin, following unique designs over the last five years by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Damien Hirst and Peter Blake.
