James Corden to present the 2013 BRIT Awards

Funny man James Corden will be presenting the 2013 BRIT Awards.

The awards, which take place annually to celebrate achievements in popular British music, will take place on February 20th at London’s O2 Arena next year.

Clearly a popular host, it will be the fourth time the ‘Gavin and Stacey’ star will present the ceremony.  

The nominees will be announced in January next year, with last year's winners including Adele, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.

Meanwhile British artist Damian Hirst will be taking over from designer Vivienne Westwood and putting his touch to the iconic award statuette.
