Jack Whitehall will be hosting the 2020 Brit Awards, making it his third year presenting the prestigious ceremony.

After it was announced the show will be getting a revamp, with one of the category names being switched up, music fans were eager to find out which star would be leading the evening.

And it turns out bosses have turned to the much-loved comedian, who is ‘delighted’ to be returning.

The 31-year-old said: ‘I’m delighted to be back hosting for a third time and excited for another night of trying not to put my foot in it in front of the biggest names in the music industry.’

The news was reported by The Sun, with insiders revealing how it was a ‘smart move’ to get Jack back.

They told the publication: ‘When it goes badly wrong, a hosting stint can absolutely kill the event. The key is to complement the performances and the feel of the night.

‘Jack nailed it. He was a hit with the stars in the room and viewers at home, so it seemed a smart move to get him signed up for another one.’

But while the hosting duties will stay the same, it seems the show will be having a change around this year, and we can’t wait.

The Brits will return on 18 February 2020 to celebrate their 40th anniversary, and it’ll look slightly different compared to previous years with organisers promising ‘less awards and more music’.

This means the creative direction will be handed over to the artists so they have more control over their performances.

But perhaps the biggest change is the critics’ choice award will be named the Brit rising star award and, not only that, but the winner will now perform during the main show.

Addressing the changes, chairman of the Brits Committee for 2020, David Joseph, said: ‘We have had a fresh look at the Brit Awards this year.

‘Most importantly we will be putting creativity, British culture and exceptional performances at the heart of the show to make Brits night a world class celebration.’

He added: ‘The awards should be a global platform for the artists of the year to create moments that live beyond the night itself.

‘We are looking at everything to put on the best possible show.’
