Ant and Dec send good luck message to their Brits successor Michael Buble


Canadian crooner Michael Buble has been announced as the Ant and Dec replacement for The Brit Awards with the presenting pair sending him a message of good luck.

The singer has been signed to take over from Geordie presenting duo Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who have hosted the awards evening for the last two years.

The I'm A Celebrity hosts posted a good luck message on Twitter, telling Michael he will "smash it".

Earlier Michael had said he had some "pretty big shoes to fill".

The awards, known as the biggest night of the UK music scene, usually take place in February and Michael has been nominated for a gong at the ceremony three times before, but is yet to get a win.
