Emma and Dermot O’Leary to host The BRIT Awards 2017

The BRIT Awards are delighted to confirm Emma and Dermot O’Leary as co-hosts for the UK’s biggest night in music, following the sad news that Michael Bublé is  not able to present the 2017 Awards.

'Every part of me sends so much love and all the well wishes in the world to Michael and his family at such a difficult time,' says Emma. 'I'm a huge fan of his and I would have relished watching him present the BRITs. I know everyone involved wants to make the best show possible and I hope we do him proud.'

'I had an awesome time presenting the nominations show this year and I am delighted to be asked back for the main event. To present the BRITs is an honour but to be doing it alongside one of my absolute favourites, Mr Dermot O'Leary is just bonkers. Bring on the Brits 2017!'

Already confirmed to perform at the O2 on the 22nd February are Robbie Williams, Little Mix, The 1975 and Emeli Sandé with more huge names to be announced in the coming weeks.
