Comedian Jack Whitehall is to host the Brit Awards for the first time next year.
Jack Whitehall is to host the Brit Awards in 2018.
The 29-year-old comedian was among the contenders lined up to present the annual awards ceremony earlier this year after singer Michael Buble was forced to pull out following his son's cancer diagnosis, but the coveted job eventually went to Dermot O'Leary and Emma Willis.
Now though, the 'Bad Education star has been given his chance to host the event and he is ''thrilled'' to be master of ceremonies, describing the Brits as ''the kind of show you dream of hosting as a kid, so [I'm] really excited to have been asked''.
Brit Awards chairman Jason Iley said the 'Fresh Meat' star - who previously presented an award with Jessie J in 2012 - is expected to bring his ''enormous enthusiasm, charisma, fun and passion'' to the show.
The Brits 2018 will be held at London's O2 Arena on 21 February, celebrating the biggest successes in pop over the past year.
