Olly, 32, who last week topped the charts with his latest album 24 Hrs, said: "I always love playing live and this will be a great warm-up for my 24 Hrs."

For Craig, the booking rounds off an exceptional comeback year as his Following My Intuition album made number one, 16 years after his debut Born To Do It.

The 35-year-old said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be involved with the Brits this year, which always showcases the best of British and international music and highlights how important our industry is on a global scale."

It will also mark a special moment for Christine And The Queens, who extended her huge local fan base with a UK tour this year.

Self-proclaimed Brits fan Emma said she was looking forward to combining her love of music with presenting.

The former model, 40, said: "I've always been a massive fan of the Brit Awards, it's one of the most fun nights of the year.

"I watch it religiously so I couldn't be more excited to be a part of the team and to reveal all the nominations for 2017."
