"I really love the Brits. I'm such a fan," the One Chance actor said. "I'll miss not doing it after this one but fully intend to enjoy every second of Brits 2014."

The 35-year-old had already hinted he may quit the Brits speaking to BBC Radio 1's Greg James in September.

"It's probably time to hand it over to someone younger and better looking," he said at the time.

Corden first presented the event in 2009 alongside Mathew Horne and Kylie Minogue, before going it alone from 2011 onwards.

Jack Whitehall, Nick Grimshaw and Fearne Cotton are among the stars tipped to take on hosting from 2015.

The Brit Awards 2014 take place at the O2 Arena in London on February 19, which will be broadcast live on ITV.

Tickets go on sale from 10am today (November 28).
