James Corden - James Corden presenting BRIT Awards was 'horrid'

James Corden claims presenting the BRIT Awards was ''horrid''.

The comic admits having an audience that ''don't listen to anything you say'' was the most frustrating aspect throughout the five years he hosted the annual music ceremony, and it's something he won't miss now that he has stepped down.

Speaking during the 'Michael McIntyre Chat Show', James 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 following his last stint as a host in February 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.''

Meanwhile, speculation as to who will take over has been rife with Radio 1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw, 29, expressing interest in the job while James has championed Emma Willis, 38.
