Gavin And Stacey star James Corden will host this year's Brit Awards.

The comedian and actor will front the show, which is being shown live on television from the 02 arena in south London on Tuesday February 15.



He said: "I have always loved the Brits and I am honoured to have been asked to host such a prestigious event."



Nominations for the music awards are being announced later today.



Corden co-hosted the awards in 2009 with Kylie Minogue and Gavin And Stacey co-star Mathew Horne.



This year's winners will pick up trophies designed by fashion guru Dame Vivienne Westwood.



Brits bosses have promised this year's show will have a new Oscars-style approach, focusing on the best album prize as the prestige award.
