6 suggestions to replace James Corden as host in 2015

Speaking to Digital Spy and others at the ELLE Style Awards 2014 in association with Warehouse, Radio 1 DJ Grimshaw revealed that he would be up for following in Corden's footsteps.

"I think it's big shoes to fill because James Corden's very, very good at it," Grimshaw said. "But yeah, I'd love to do it."

Corden himself recently suggested that Big Brother presenter Emma Willis could replace him.

He said: "If I had my way, it would be Emma hands down. I feel like the Brits has been quite male-dominated. I think it would really benefit from having a woman."

Katy Perry, Lorde, Disclosure, Pharrell Williams, Arctic Monkeys, Rudimental, Ellie Goulding and Bastille are among the acts confirmed to perform at this year's awards.

The Brit Awards 2014 in association with MasterCard will be broadcast live on ITV in the UK, with Bastille and Disclosure leading the nominations and James Corden to return as host.
