James Corden has become the familiar face of the Brit Awards after hosting the ceremony for the last three years but he has now revealed that he is unsure if he wants to continue in the role.

Speaking to Radio 1’s Greg James he admitted that although he loves the show, he thinks he will only do it for one more year:

The Brit Awards have produced many memorable moments over the years such as Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker invading Michael Jackson’s performance in 1996, Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack very small mini dress the following year and the Osbourne family hosting in 2008.

If the comedian does host the ceremony next year he will have equalled Chris Evans' record of hosting the event four times. Nick Grimshaw, Jack Whitehall and Fearne Cotton are currently tipped to take over the role if James does leave.
