LONDON, Jan 25: TV personality Dermot O’Leary is in early talks to host the 2017 BRIT Awards.
The 43-year-old star has been asked by producers of the music ceremony to present the annual event after singer Michael Buble pulled out of the hosting gig, that will take place at London’s The O2 on February 22, reported Femalefirst.
“Dermot is exactly what ITV want to host the Brits, a safe pair of hands. He has that wealth of experience, specially with live TV.
“He has been at the helm of ‘The X Factor’ for a decade and has a solid awards background too, thanks to the National Television Awards (NTAs). He is talking to producers but hasn’t made a decision yet. Emma is also an option,” a source said. (PTI)
