The Gavin & Stacey star said: "Blur will perform for 11 minutes at the end of the show - more than anyone has been given before for the 'Outstanding Contribution To Music Award'."

Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon unveiled brand new song 'Under The Westway' at a pre-Brit Awards gig at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire last night.

Last week, Coxon revealed that Blur will "definitely" release a new album in the future.

The Brit Awards 2012 will take place at London's O2 Arena tomorrow (February 21). The show will be broadcast live from 8pm on ITV1.
