Ant and Dec to host the 2015 Brit Awards

TV stalwarts Ant and Dec are to host next year's Brit Awards. 

The pair, who have been fixtures on our TV screens for over 20 years now, will host next year's ceremony, a full 14 years after they lasted hosted the event in 2001. 

Actor James Corden has hosted the event for the last four years, but made it clear at last year's event that he would not be returning in 2015. 

Speaking about the gig, the pair said: "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 one recording artists ourselves. We'll be offering our advice to the fledgling pop stars backstage as to how to have a number one 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."

The 2015 Brit Awards will take place on February 25th at London's O2 Arena.
