Take That are to be among the acts performing at next year's Brit Awards.

The group - who welcomed Robbie Williams back into the line-up this year - will perform as a five-piece at the event for the first time in 16 years.

Also performing at the show on February 15 will be rapper-turned-soul star Plan B.

Organisers of the Brit Awards 2011 with MasterCard announced the first pair of performers to coincide with votes being cast by music industry figures and artists to determine who will win prizes.

Take That made a fresh-faced show-stopping performance in 1994 when they played a Beatles medley, including I Wanna Hold Your Hand, She Loves You and A Hard Day's Night.

The following year they were back to play Back For Good, just months before Robbie quit the group that summer.

They have performed as a quartet in 2009 with a spectacular show in which they were lowered down over the audience on an illuminated platform.

Brits bosses are hoping to completely revamp the ceremony next year and have moved it from its usual location at Earl's Court in west London to a new base at the O2 Arena in south east London.

And the trophies have been restyled by a guest designer for 2011, fashion guru Dame Vivienne Westwood.

The ceremony will have as its focus the best album category as producers aim to emulate the feel of the Oscars ceremony and its celebration of the climactic best film award.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
