Miss Piggy is set to snout out all gossip at the Bafta Film Awards this year.

The glamorous star of The Muppets has been revealed as Orange's red carpet host of the British Academy Film Awards 2012.

Miss Piggy is already practising her flirting skills as she prepares to meet Best Actor nominees George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Gary Oldman and Jean Dujardin at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden on Sunday February 12.

"Imagine the likes of Clooney, Dujardin, Fassbender, Oldman and Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers by getting a chance to speak with the one and only moi - Miss Piggy!" she said.

"Naturally, I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask."

She even challenged The Descendants star Clooney - who is currently dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler - to a bout on the red carpet.

Miss Piggy declared: "I don't wrestle girlfriends. However, if George wants to wrestle, bring it on! Best two out of three falls? Winner gets a dinner?"

The Orange Bafta Red Carpet Show With Miss Piggy will air on On Monday February 13.
