article imageWriter/actor James Corden to host BRIT Awards

The writer, actor and creator of one of Britain’s best-loved sitcoms, James Corden will host this year’s BRIT Awards in London.
It will be the second such honour for Corden, who co-hosted the awards in 2009 with fellow Gavin & Stacey actor Matthew Horne and Aussie singer Kylie Minogue.
Corden, 32, co-created and co-wrote the Gavin & Stacey series with Ruth Jones, 44. He played jolly Southerner Smithy, best pal of Gavin, while Jones played burly, non-nonsense Nessa.
Rob Brydon, Alison Steadman, Melanie Walters and Larry Lamb were other prominent cast members.
This year, the BRITs will take place on February 15 at London’s O2 arena for the first time in its 30-year history, according to the BBC. Previously, the prestigious show has taken place at Earl’s Court in west London.

“The programme will feature performances by Ellie Goulding and Tinie Tempah,” says the BBC. “Designer Dame Vivienne Westwood has been invited to create a new version of the iconic Brit award for this year’s event.”
The boy band Take That will perform, also – their first time at the BRITs for 16 years.
The group recently reunited with Robbie Williams. They last sang at the BRITs in 1995, not long before Williams left the band to go solo.
