James Corden will host this year's Brits.

The Gavin & Stacey star, who co-presented the ceremony with comic sidekick Mathew Horne and Kylie Minogue in 2009, is set for a solo presenting gig at London's O2 Arena on February 15.

"I have always loved the Brits and I am honoured to have been asked to host such a prestigious event," James said.

Take That and Plan B will be performing at the star-studded bash, with more acts to be announced shortly.

The 2011 Brit Awards will see some changes, including a new venue and a bespoke statue styled by fashion icon Vivienne Westwood.

Peter Kay hosted the glitzy event last year when Liam Gallagher, making a surprise appearance to collect an award for best Brits album of the past 30 years, threw his gong and microphone into the audience.

Lady Gaga was the big winner of the night, walking away with three awards, while Robbie Williams was honoured with a prize for his outstanding contribution to the UK music industry.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
