Emma Willis favourite to become next Brit Awards host

Big Brother presenter Emma Willis is the 6-1 favourite, while comedian Jack Whitehall is next best at 7-1. Other names tipped to succeed Corden include Nick Grimshaw at 8-1, Fearne Cotton at 9-1 and Ant and Dec at 14-1. Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand have been chalked up as outsiders at 50-1.

Coral is also taking bets on a selection of Brit Awards specials ahead of the star-studded ceremony. The firm go 2-1 that a celebrity drops the award on stage, 4-1 that an artist is cut-off during their acceptance speech and 5-1 that a celebrity invades the stage.

“Emma Willis has replaced Holly Willoughby as the hostess with the mostess and with James Corden’s job up for grabs, we reckon the Big Brother presenter could be made an offer,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
