Actor and TV presenter James Corden said presenting the BRIT Awards was “horrid” as he was faced with a roomful of people who ignored him.
James has hosted the music ceremony for the past five year but stepped down after the last awards show in February.
Speaking of his role as presenter he said, “It was horrid. It was so much fun the week leading up to it and you get to see the bands, and then it is live and you are in a room full of people that don’t listen to anything you say.
“People who beg for a ticket and then pretend they are too cool to be there. They are chatting, drinking and eating.”
James, 35, admits he will miss the show but thinks the BRITS would benefit from having a younger host.
He added, “I enjoyed doing it and I’m sure when it comes around in February I will miss being a part of it. But it’s time to hand it to someone younger and cooler.”
Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw and TV presenter Emma Willis are said to be in the running for the presenter slot.
