James Corden To Host The Brit Awards 2013!

Artist Damien Hirst will also design the prestigious Brits statues...

James Corden is set to host The Brit Awards again next year.

It has been confirmed that the Gavin & Stacey star will front the prestigious bash on Wednesday 10th February at London's O2 Arena, making it the fourth time he has hosted the ceremony.

It seems all has been forgiven after Corden was forced to interrupt Adele's acceptance speech at this year's ceremony - with the funnyman matching Chris Evan's hosting record, who led proceedings in 1995, 1996, 2005 and 2006.

Artist Damien Hirst has also been announced to design the Brits trophies for next year's event, following in the footsteps of Vivienne Westwood and Sir Peter Blake.

Brits chairman David Joseph said in a statement: "We are delighted that Damien will become the third extraordinary creative Briton to reimagine the Brit statue.

"He is truly one of the most important British artists ever, and his unique vision will make winning a 2013 Brit an even more special proposition."

Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw is also confirmed to announce the nominees on 10th January 2013 at the Savoy Hotel in London.

The Brit Awards 2013 will take place on Wednesday, 20th February 2013 at The O2 in London, and will air live on ITV.
