Brit Awards organizers have unveiled a new hosting team, following the departure of Mo Gilligan.
Mo has been the UK frontman for the past two years, taking over the show from Jack Whitehall, but last year he announced that he would not be able to return in 2024 due to his American touring commitments.
It has now emerged that England bosses have taken a slightly different approach this time, by forming a new trio to lead the awards.
After previously receiving praise for hosting certain segments with Mo in the last two years, Maya Jama is confirmed to be the host of Brits 2024.
He will be joined by Radio 1 favorite Clara Amfo and The One Show’s Roman Kemp.
“I’ve worked with amazing teams in the UK for many years and it’s something I’ve always watched, and wanted to be a part of, growing up – so it’s fantastic to be taking to the stage this year as host!” Maya is enthusiastic.
“For me, it is always one of the best nights of the year, and a real celebration of British music, culture and talent.”Mo Gilligan and Maya Jama at the 2022 Brits

Clara agreed that British was a “desirable” job for her, and added: “I am so honored and excited for this year’s show.
“Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to witness the growth of this year’s nominees and artists and I know it will be special.”
Roman also described landing the role of the Brit as “a real ‘pinch me’ moment” and an “honor”.
“Being asked to host this year’s awards was a dream come true. “It is an honor to share the stage with so many talented artists and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of all of this year’s nominees and winners,” he said.Roman Kemp, Clara Amfo and Maya Jama presented the International Group award together at last year’s Brits

British top brass announced this year’s nominees last week, with chart-topping singer Raye leading the way with an impressive seven nominations, the most of any artist in history in a single night.
England 2024 will take place on Saturday 2 March.
