Jack Whitehall is getting an encore as host of the Brit Awards.

It seems like forever ago that the Bad Education and Good Omens star was on stage at the O2 Arena in London honouring the likes of Dave, Lewis Capaldi, Stormzy and Mabel in February 2020.

That's probably because those were 'the before times', and plans for this year's Brit Awards were delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thankfully, organisers have now booked May 11 as the new Brit Awards 2021 date at the O2 Arena, as well as confirming that Jack Whitehall will be back as host once again.

By hosting for four years running, Jack ties the record for hosting consecutive ceremonies set by The Late Late Show's James Corden, between 2011 and 2014.

"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 11th May," he said.

Whitehouse made headlines during last year's Brit Awards when he made an awkward mistake in accidentally referring to Harry Styles' sister as his date during an interview. Oops!

All of the Brit Awards 2021 excitement will begin next Wednesday (March 31) when Nick Grimshaw and BRITs Rising Star winner Griff announce this year's shortlist of nominees.

Special guests will be joining the duo starting at 4pm as a live nominations special is streamed on all of the Brit Awards social platforms.

The Brit Awards 2021 will air live on ITV from the 02 Arena in London, hosted by Jack Whitehall, on Tuesday, May 10.
