How we've missed normality in the shape of a giant BRIT Award, so it's great news that the music event is on its way back and Jack Whitehall is making a welcome return as the host with the most.

The star-studded show will take place on May 11 2021 instead of it's usual slot back in February which was postponed due to the pandemic. 

Jack Whitehall said of his exciting role: “I must be doing something right to be invited back to host the BRITs! After the events of the past year, I think we can all do with a big night of music and entertainment, and I'm excited to be part of the show on May 11.” 

Artists will have to wait to see if they're up for an award as the nominations are set to be announced next week on Wednesday March 31.

On the same day from 4pm, DJ Nick Grimshaw will be revealing the shortlist for BRITs Rising Star with Radio 1's Griff across the BRITs official digital channels YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
